Very Rare "CS" Embossed Confederate Soldier's Percussion Cap Box
Click on an image to enlarge
Here is an extremely scarce and very desirable original Confederate percussion cap box. What makes this one stand out from other cap boxes of the day is the oval stamping on the outer flap. It has the stamping of "CS" inside the oval panel. This one is still visible when you turn it in the right light. The outer flap tapers down to the point that doubles as the closure tab as it goes over the Confederate lead finial which is still attached to the bottom of the box itself. On the reverse , you can see the stitching holes where it had the single wide pattern belt loop. When you open up the outer flap, you're greeted by the original innermost compartment of the percussion cap box. This compartment is where the soldier would have held the percussion caps for his carbine, rifle or musket. In my 30+ years in the business, this is only the 3rd one of these that I have been able to offer. This percussion cap box will fit in nicely with any museum quality collection.
