What a scarce version of the beautiful U.S. patriotic powder flask! This is one of my favorite flasks ever made. On the sides it would have originally had the "US” on the shield with the draped flags behind along with the trumpet, cannon swords and muskets. This one has had the "US" removed long ago. Above that it has the shaking hands design which has always been associated as a sign of "Peace” that is where the flask gets its name of the peace flask. Above the hands it has the beautiful large eagle. On the side of the flask it has both of the strap ring attachments present. The body of the flask has nice wear from use as you can see in the pictures. The original cap and spout is present. The lever is present but the spring is broken. What makes this one special is the marking on the top of the flask body. It has the maker’s mark of "N.P. AMES” and the 1838 production date. On the top of the flask body it has the "WS” inspector initials of William Smith still present. Only a small amount of these Ames peace flasks were made in 1838 and this was the second year of orders for flask of the Ames Contracts with the Government for the peace style flasks. The patination of the flask has a superb look all over with a rich dark tone. The side seams have some separations as you see in the images. This one has a nice old ancient look and will make a superb addition to your collection.
