Click on an image to enlarge
This is a fine original Civil War leather box that held the percussion caps for muskets, pistols or carbines. This one is in solid shape and has both of the belt loops intact on the back of the box. It has the outer flap with the closure tab and brass finial intact. On the outer flap, you can see the oval inspector stamp where it was approved for Government service by the Ordnance Department sub-inspector, R. White. When you open it up you can see the traces of the Civil War maker's mark of the S.H. Young firm of Newark, New Jersey. On the inner pocket it still has had all of the lamb's wool removed. The soldier's often removed the wool to make the caps easier to get out. This one is a fine looker!
