In Exceptional Condition!
Certainly an un-issued item in fantastic condition. The canteen is an 1858 canteen from the Civil War days that has been modified to accept strap rings (M1878). The sling for cavalry or mounted use is showing wear from handling over the years with light wear on the edges, and minor age crackling here and there. The snap hood shows just about all the original japanned finish. Canvas and markings are clean and sharp.
This old 4 ring “bullseye’ canteen may not have a field history, but condition will be hard to match ever.
