US Indian Wars/Spanish American War Era, Oversized "Arizona" Canteen

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: $275.00
Item #35032

Original era manufacture. Very similar in construction to the standard, IW-SAW era issue canteen, but about half again as large. Being of a larger capacity, we used to refer to these canteens as the "Arizona" canteen back in the day. Likely the army had a more specific name for them, but in either case, they tend to be fairly uncommon. I cannot remember having more than a few of these pass through our hands in the past 40 odd years. This example is quite sound, showing a clear U.S. stencil, with sound stitching, and no major denting to the body. Comes with its original cloth shoulder strap, measures nearly 10 inches across.
