Click on an image to enlarge
This is a scarce piece! It is the hard to find brass topped musket tompion for a Civil War rifle. This is Wilmot's Patent expandable rubber tompion. These tompions served as a plug to go in the front end of a barrel to keep water and/or dirt from getting in a causing damage to the barrel. Around the body top it has the marking "PATENTED NOV. 24TH 1863". The top portion is made of brass and the lower portion is made of softer cloth covered material to form a good seal in the rifle barrel. The lower portion still screws down just as it should. This one is in very fine shape and will make a fantastic addition to any Civil War dated rifle.
