What a neat item #267 is!  It is a leather cased Hamilton that was used as a military canteen.  The torpedo bottle's lip indicates it is approximately of 1860's manufacture.  There's no way to tell if it is embossed so it will stay just the way it is.  Another great item that I now own from Dennis' collection. I also have the ashtray #268 (on the next page) but its description is on this page.
