Civil War soldier's Regulation Tin Cup


Product Description

This is another nice item being offered, it is the classic regulation Civil War Issue Tin Cup. This government issued mug is approximately 4 1/4 inches tall with a 4 1/4-inch diameter and holds roughly a quart. Not signed (none were) but classic with the large loop handle secured to the lip with two wire reinforcing loops passing from the handle around the lip of the cup. These reinforcing wires when present are a strong indication of 1850s – 1860s manufacture, regardless of the pattern of cup in question.

The cup is in excellent condition with no denting, only some very light surface rust from storage, which could easily be taken care of with some olive oil rubbing. These issue cups are becoming very difficult to find. I have one in my book “The Civil War Soldier – His Personal Items” (see pictures).
