    Dave,
    Never used tin before.
    What are the caveats?

    If you buy from a vendor, untinned is a little more difficult especially for the less expensive items. Other premium vendors have untinned, but at a premium price too...

    But at $45 from Crazy Crow, tough to beat the price.

    It may rust over time..., that's all. The dull stainless wont.
    So you have to pay a bit more attention to it. If you're going to put it away for a while then rub some veg oil on it, and wash it well when you want to take it out into the field.
    For a few bucks more there is a "hot dipped tin" mug available from "Hot Dipped Tin - tinsmith" http://www.hotdiptin.com/oconostota-cup.html Still a lot less expensive than a copper corn boiler, eh?

    Dave,
    Not a bad price and a nice piece, sure beats the copper price tag!

    Big thumbs up for hot dipped tin and backwoods tin and copper. HDT has copies many of their pieces from pieces recovered from digs at forts.
    Avolon forge offers stainless steel.... just as a side note AFs five gallon kettle would make a good water storage device for a camp.much cheaper then a barrel or cistern.
