Small Tin Drum Militia Canteen - All Soldered
Here is a Fine Pre-War or Civil War Period Tin Drum Militia Canteen ! It still has the tin spout, all three sling loops, and a single wide tin belt loop present, all in good order.

The very wide belt loop on the reverse would accept up to about a 3.25 inch belt. I see no holes or rusted thru areas, and all the tin wears a very nice old gray patina.
