Regulation Civil War Issue Cup
Regulation Civil War Issue Cup – This cup is an original, completely regulation issue Union Army drinking cup. These cups, which hold about a quart, were all manufactured with two heavy iron, baling loops to secure the upper handle attachment to the cup proper; the lower section of the handle of these cups are soldered and riveted to the cup body. Also, issue cups’ diameter and height are generally the same – about 4.25” each, as exhibited by this cup. This cup is in overall strong condition, with some surface discoloration from a coating of thin surface oxidation; there are no holes and the metal is strong.
