VERY COOL! Confederate Made Percussion Cap Bop with Cast Brass Finial
Click on an image to enlarge
This is a wonderful untouched Civil War artifact. This is the small leather box that was designed to hold the percussion caps for the soldier's pistol, musket or carbine. What is neat about this one is that it is a Southern made version of the box. When you look at the simple construction of the box compared to that of the Northern made cap boxes it is clear to see this one would have never made it out of a Northern arsenal. It is made of the black tone leather that has the tarred coating to the leather to make it more durable. The outer flap as well as the inner flap still retain a beautiful amount of the tarring. All of the closure tab is still present. The finial itself is a small one that is made of cast brass and is secured in place by a brass washer on the inside. The innermost compartment no longer has the material to hold the caps in place was at one time. On the back of the box it has the classic Southern single thin leather belt loops intact. This is a very cool box that is Confederate in manufacture and displays beautifully!
