CONFEDERATE PERCUSSION CAP POUCH

$1,295.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: M25586

This is an excellent example of a Confederate-made percussion cap pouch. In wonderful condition, this pouch has all the typical characteristics one looks for in a CS piece. The back and outer flap are a single piece of leather. The leather latch tab is sewn to the outer flap and the finial is made of lead. The single belt loop is 1 3/8” wide. The inner flap appears to be tan pig skin. Sewn to this are very small side “ears” (made of same thicker, black cow hide as the rest of the pouch) sewn in place.  All leather is supple and relatively soft. Stitching is mostly complete and tight. Only the line of stitching that attached both the inner flap and the top of the belt loop is gone. Apparently, a period repair was made to fix this, as a thin leather cord (perhaps a shoe lace) was run through the back and knotted to tie the belt loop in place.  Remnants of lamb’s wool remain.

This is an amazing example of a Confederate-made cap pouch and definitely “whistles Dixie”. Would be hard to find better.   [jet]
