CS Embossed Canteen


Description and Photograph




     CS embossed or impressed tin canteens are exceedingly rare.  Several embossed models like the one shown here were found covering the faces of Confederate dead at Port Hudson, Louisiana.  This pattern is believed to have been made in Louisiana.  In ten years of actively searching public and private collections for examples of this canteen pattern, I have discovered only four non-excavated canteens bearing the CS embossment.

     This is the most sought after and desirable of all the Confederate canteen patterns because of the large CS embossed on the front and rear faces.                                             

     The canteenís condition is excellent.  The tin is solid and all soldering is intact and solid.  The canteen would still hold water today.
