Wonderful painted Civil War 5-ring canteen. This is the classic style known to collectors as the "Bullseye” pattern with the reinforcement rings stamped on each side. It still has all three of the original strap loops present, as well as the pewter spout. The canteen was painted silver with the Civil War dates “61/65” in red, white, and blue letters. Affixed to the center is an excellent Virginia Staff Officer’s button with full gilt. A wonderful veteran’s piece that would display well in any Civil War or canteen collection.
