This is a fantastic Confederate relic! It is an original leather cap box that held the soldier's percussion caps for his pistol, rifle or carbine. This one has half of the leather closure strap intact. This is the style that has the inner flap and has the "ears" on the outer flap that keep the caps inside. The inner compartment has the classic Confederate lead finial intact and in superb shape. The Union counterparts had brass or copper finials. Almost all of the Southern produced cap boxes have the lead finials because it was easier to find lead that it was brass or copper. It even has the material on the inside of the still remaining on the inside. On the back of the box it has the other classic trait of being Rebel in manufacture. Instead of the Union style of having two well made thin belt loops the Southern boxes like this one has the single wide belt loop. The belt loop is held in place by two iron rivets. This one is very nice all the way around and is 100% Confederate!
