Makes you wonder how that nice ding got in the bottom on the bulls eye canteen, looks like the aim was off a bit. Still its in there....Nice collection!

Nice Civil War canteens.  Here is my one and only.  I bought it 15-20 years ago.  The dealer claimed it was recovered at Fort Fisher.  No idea if that story holds water or not (sorry, I really really tried to resist saying that), but it didn't seem to add anything to the price.
