A classic of common life seldom surviving to reach todays collector of Civil War mess gear or personal items, the vast majority of these cans were crushed and cast away once they had served their purpose. Telltale of the period is the extremely thin sheet iron material, over lapping lead soldered seams and the spot of solder sealing what had served as a vent hole in the top of the can. The period preservation process required that full cans be heated with the small vent hole then sealed with a spot of lead solder. (The heating and resulting vacuum resulting from sealing off the vent before the content was entirely cool offered some considerable shelf life in the days before refrigeration.) This rare intact example somehow avoided the crushing boot and trash heap and just for effect comes with a good old cast spoon of the same era. A simple period pair that will add a finishing touch to any Civil War personal or winter camp grouping. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques! :
