US Indian Wars Era, M1874 Meatcan

This item is listed for historical interest only. It was listed on our site previously but has been sold and is no longer available for purchase.
Sold for: $75.00
Item #42887

Original period manufacture. First general issue meatcan or messkit issued to the US Army (can't really count the M1872 contraption) which saw use in new and improved versions up through the Vietnam War, that's over 100 years.

Gray finished steel body with a movable handle which is US proofed on the end. Minor surface corrosion and denting, but overall a very sound example of this early pattern mess equipment.
