The provenance on this old canteen would be fascinating. It sports a bullet hole. Our research has supported it could be a civil war piece. If indeed it is, it most likely belonged to a "Yankee" Union Soldier, as the South did not have the metals with which to produce such a canteen. The hide or wool has worn off and the lid lost along the way.
Great story piece. It is 9" in diameter.
