Mexican War Canteens, tin drum, US embossed, 1840, 1850
C & D Jarnagin Company
* After each use rinse your canteen with warm water and baking soda. Store your canteen with the cork out. This will help prevent rust and corrosion.
* We have not affixed the canteen strap on drum canteens because many wish to paint their canteen. This will also give you the ability to adjust the strap length according to your needs.
* We recommend that you use only distilled water in your canteen. Tap water contains many minerals that will
promote rust rather than prevent it.
