Item No. AR1109MF Category


Civil War period leather percussion cap box. Complete example of a Federal pattern accoutrement carried by US Infantrymen during the Civil War. The black leather specimen is in very strong condition. Cap box construction exhibits seam stitching that is strong and tight. The brown leather outer flap is supple and exhibits a surface with moderate cracking at the hinge area and face. The flap’s integral closure tab is strong and supple with flaking at the finial hole. Inner flap is very fine and retains both ‘ears’ or side covers on the flap. Backside of this box has two original leather vertical belt loops sewn on with brass rivets. Stitching is tight and strong, as are the loops. The interior wool is missing as is the vent pick. No makers mark but there are two inspectors cartouches on the reverse. Overall a nice cap box for displaying.
