Here is an artifact with some stories to tell. A bullseye canteen with the correct civil war era shoulder straps still intact. The spout is present and the actual body appears to in good shape with a couple holes noted, but no major dents noted. The cover and strap however are post civil war and the stitching around the edge has nearly all separated. Towards the bottom of the canteen there are remnants of the original jean civil war cover. The outer canvas cover has '8/Co D/2' for its last campaign assignment. Neat relic.
