  • Description: This is an excellent stamped steel tin plated Army short cup. This would appear to be one of the first to be made of a single piece of steel sheet. All cups prier were two piece and all the cups, except the pattern 1901, after were made of aluminum in 1906. This cup measures 2 tall and 3 across. It is clearly marked on the top of the handle with US. The handle is held by one rivet top and bottom. A good portion of the coating is still present with only light surface corrosion and no dents or gouges. In my research I have found only a few cups like this one. The overall appearance is nice with a wonderful patina that talks of its age.
