There were many variations of Philadelphia's corrugated "bullseye" canteen made, ranging from four to over a dozen rings. Luckily for us, the typical reproduction version best matches the earlier contracts that would have been seen in the field beginning in late 1862 and early 1863. Most of these earlier corrugated canteens were covered in scrap uniform cloth and blankets, or any cheap, ugly wool fabric purchased locally. Other canteens included striped cotton twill tape slings. This Group Buy includes copies of two original corrugated Philadelphia canteens in their original as-issued configuration, one with a striped cover and plain herringbone twill strap, and the other with a plain cover and striped strap, each utilizing custom material made by Family Heirloom Weavers to match the original exactly.
