    Excellent, Used Federal Issue Haversack Complete with Interior Bag. This is a very nice example of the standard Union soldier's haversack with full sling and removable white cotton lining secured by three simple tin buttons. The body measures about 12" x 12" with a 3" wide panel in the rounded bottom to permit expansion. The leather closing strap is sewn to the flap and has had one of the holes enlarged during the period. The roller buckle is still sewn firmly in place. Overall, the piece shows some very light period use and is highly pliable with virtually all of its original tarred coating. There are some almost unnoticeable splits and seam openings. A really exceptional example of a basic piece of equipment.
