Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
This is an outstanding example of a true period piece. This great cup has all the distinguishing features of tinware of the era including the lead soldered seams and a completely flat bottom. While I would love to see this cup get back out on the trail, I would consider using this cup as a rustic conversation piece or a wonderful addition to any period collection.
Please review the pictures regarding the condition of this piece. The cup is in great condition overall with only a few minor rust spots here and there. The patina is outstanding and the marks from use at the bottom of the cup only add to its character and authenticity. The cup also holds liquid as it was as originally intended to do so. This is a very fine example of a tin "cavalry" cup from the Civil War era and would make a great addition to any collection.
Thanks for looking and have a great day!! Be sure to check out my other items!!
