Original tin cups
I have a collection of Civil War tinware, camping gear and other miscellaneous stuff from the war. What I'm trying to find is an original tin cup from the period. I have been able to find mess plates, knives and forks but not tin cups. Do you guys know of any antique dealers out there that might have dug up a tin cup at a battlefield. At this point I'm thinking I might have to cheat a little and use a beat up modern repro. So if you guys can't help me find an orginial and you have a nice beat up repro that you want to get rid of that would be great. The more black, dented and rusted the cup the better.
This is my signature. There are many others like it, but this one is mine.
My signature is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.
Without me, my sig is useless. Without my sig, I am useless.
