    Very Rare Smooth-Sided Canteen with Tarred Strap. Made specially to accept a wide strap of coated fabric, this New York style canteen is a noteworthy variant made either under Federal or state contract. The original stopper is still connected by an iron chain and the gray wool cover is complete although stained and dirty from age. The full length 1¼" wide strap appears to be made of tarred or glazed cotton and is fixed to the canteen by means of three uniquely designed wedge-shaped brackets created to accommodate this special strap and not the usual rectangular strap loops. A very unusual and difficult to find example of the Federal canteen.
