Canteen Cover Kit, Made in USA




These kits include Material to cover the canteen, Canteen Strap and Cork with correct attachment for depot. Each of the various depots issued canteens slightly different and we offer the options of which depot along with type and color of cover. All covers are machine sewn on the bottom half, as per the depots of the 1850s-1860s: however, other than the NY Depot, ALL COVERS WERE MADE FROM SCRAP MATERIAL AND COLOR WAS NOT REGULATED. Some of the differences are:

  • New York Depot, dark blue wool cover, folded cotton strap with “T.F. Bayles, U.S. Inspctor” stamp and cork with chain.
  • Cincinnati Depot, folded cotton strap with maker “Holenshade” and U.S. Inspector A. G. Spencer” and cork with twine attached.
  • Philadelphia Depot had cotton twill strap with no maker or inspector stamp and cork with twine attachment.

All Depot types are available with the option of material, please specify.
