This is an antique miner's canteen from the mid-to-late 1800s. These canteens were used by coal miners to carry water and fuel with them into the mines where they worked. Canteens of similar design were also used by under-equipped Confederate soldiers at the outbreak of the Civil War, but I am almost certain that this is a later 1800s piece based on some of the aspects of how this canteen was constructed. Overall, this is a very solid canteen and it could still be used today. If you do not wish to use it for its original purpose, this canteen would also be a great period reenactment piece or a rustic conversation starter on display at your home. Take home this authentic piece of history today and help keep its story alive!

Please review the pictures regarding the condition of this piece. The canteen is in beautiful condition overall with only a few dings here and there from use in the mines. The screw cap is tight and functions as originally intended. The original lead solder is visible on some of the seams and around the top and helps to authenticate the age of this piece. This canteen is a very fine example of a miner's canteen from the 19th century and would make a great addition to any collection.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!!
