|#12139 - Union Bullseye Canteen with initials in the spout |
This is an original Civil War Union Army Model 1858 corrugated ("bullseye") canteen contracted through the Philadelphia Depot. The spout is unmarked, so the canteen would have been produced in early to mid-1862 before the August contract requiring the makers to stamp their initials/names into the spouts. This one was most likely produced by Hadden, Porter & Booth. There are the letters "RI" hand carved upside down on the spout and the letter "E" carved rightside up, which could be the soldier's initials or the abbreviation for Rhode Island and Company E. Just possibilities. This canteen is in very nice display condition with just a few of the typical dents endured by canteens that were actually used in the field. There are some surface rust spots, but no holes. All three strap loops are firmly attached. Some broken cork remains stuck in the spout that may or may not be the original stopper. The pewter spout has a couple of minor bends in the lip. A good example of an early issued bullseye canteen.

|#12084 - Union Bullseye canteen |
This is an original Union "bullseye" canteen with concentric rings from early in Civil War. No maker's markings. A slight pinch to zinc spout. The three carry loops are still present. (No cloth cover) It was painted for display with a white casein type paint. It could be stripped back to tin but I leave it as found. It was plucked from the rafters of an old house in New Hampshire years ago by a dealer cleaning out the place. No other history known. Minor push to one side. Seams solid.

|#11850 - GAR Hall Veterans Painted Bullseye Canteen |
This is a neat CW Union "Bullseye" canteen from a GAR Hall display. The vets usually had wall cases with actual CW relics in the GAR Post halls. Many were painted gold to denote a glorified relic of the Great Conflict. This canteen was hand-painted by a CW veteran in a cream-colored base coat with gold paint following every concentric rind. You could strip paint, but why do that. This connects both the war itself AND the GAR vets. Very cool looking!

|#11587 - Smoothside Civil War Canteen with Repairs |
This is a Union Civil War canteen marked on spout by maker "Jewett". It is the later CW variety called the "smoothside". This one had been damaged in war. It has a gray epoxy patch on one side of the body. The otherside is nice. The three straps are present but also have epoxy added to their joints. You could restore this further or just leave it up on your wall "as is".

|#11349 - CW Union Bullseye Style Canteen spout marked JC |
This is a standard CW issue Union "bullseye" canteen with the intials "JC" dug into the zinc spout. Three strap loops intact. Has pushes to both sides, which often occurred to canteens because troops accidentally say on them! Has hole in side of spout for a past cork chain (gone now). As typical, no cover. Nice used example.

|#11220 - Union Smoothside canteen maker marked A.Jewes |
This is a Union "smoothside canteen" that has the maker's markings impressed on its zinc spout "A. Jewes". There is a cork stopper with chain too. The canteen has dents on both sides (usually from soldier in packs sitting on it accidentally)but is not split open at seams. The three carry straps have been reapplied in past with extra solder, likely from coming loose. One is a brass custom-cut replacement. I'd leave it in place as it is now a part of this canteen's unique travel-history through time.

Then "60 NY INF. 3 Brig. 2 Div. 12 Corps." On the backside are painted the names of the battles that the 60th were engaged in: "Antietem, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Lookout Mountain, Ringgold, Atlanta". WOW! It's a wonder that any of those men survived all that fighting! The Canteen is a smoothside with three carry loops. No sling, cork or cover. It is in very good condition for its age. This would be a GREAT piece for any collection of New York items or a small CW Museum display.

|#6025 - Union Smoothside Canteen from Civil War |
This is an original Civil War Union "Smoothside" canteen. It has its pewter spout and all three of its strap carry loops along edges. No cork stopper, strap or cloth cover. No maker's markings. There are flattened dents of mid body on both sides, which is most common for these canteens because soldiers often sat down on these items that hung at their sides. These CW canteens are going up in price this past year. About 7 3/4" across. Minimal rust to tin and joints are intact.
Type: preserved | Condition: very good+ | Price: $160.00
|#5167 - Union Smoothside Canteen |
This is a Civil War period Union "smoothside" canteen. It has sections of pale old red paint upon it which indicate it was part of a Patriotic Military or GAR Display at one time. This can be removed easily with a paint stripper but why change this neat old historic object. Bringing items back from the battlegrounds for such GAR displays was very common in the 1880 to 1920 period when CW vets most reminisced. This has some slight areas of rust and a couple dents. This shows it was actually used and likely an early "field pickup" soon after the war. There are no maker's markings on spout. No cork stopper, chain or cloth cover... just the canteen itself. There is rust damage at bottom carry-loop but it is still solid enough to hold a strap there. Seams are good. No holes. A quite nice looking item.
Type: preserved | Condition: fine | Price: $140.00
|#5016 - Union Smoothsided Canteen |
A nice tin Union "smoothsided" Civil War period canteen with its original cloth carry strap. Though the strap is broken in one place, it could be sewn. These straps quickly deteriorated in the field during CW service, so it is great still getting one with its canteen. There is no cover and no stopper. Three carry loops for cloth strap are all present. No maker's marking on zinc spout. Has a couple small dents to its smooth contoured body (usually from trooper sitting on it over the course of his service!) The tin finish to this is still very slick and bright silvery over most of the item but there are a few tiny rust-through holes near lower strap. So you could no longer carry water in this. It's a very nice looking item. Not perfect but it's seen the elephant of the CW!
Type: preserved | Condition: Fine+ | Price: $205.00
|#4921 - Smoothside Union Civil War Canteen |
A Civil War period tin Union water canteen. It has spout and one strap loop but two of the three loops are now gone. Two tiny pinholes in tin near absent lower strap would prevent modern use to hold water. But generally is smooth and not rusted. Has the typical body dents seen with most used CW canteens that were sat upon and knocked against for years of hard use. No cork. No cover. Just a basic nice wall or shelf relic. No maker's markings.
Type: preserved | Condition: very good | Price: $97.00
|#4687 - Union Smoothside Canteen |
This is a Civil War period Union "smoothside" canteen with a later (postwar) leather carry strap added. The three strap-loops are present. No maker's markings on it. The edge of spout rim is slightly clipped. And it has a number of small pushes & dents to both sides of body. Yet that is typical to canteens as they were knocked-around hard during their terms of service~ banged against bayonets, rifles, rocks in streams and even sat down upon! This one is a good representative item. No stopper. No cloth cover. No soldier ID~ but definitely was used to the fullest. No rust-through.
Type: preserved | Condition: fine | Price: $142.00

This was often done for community display cases or GAR hall collections. Site unknown. A nice representative item. No wool cover or carry sling.
