CIVIL WAR PERCUSSION CAP POUCH

$65.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 172-4574

This is an original Civil War percussion cap pouch. This pattern has the integral closing tab as an extension of the outer flap. The tab is unbroken. There is no interior flap and it never had one. There is no fleece remaining. Bottom has brass finial. The two narrow belt loops remain in place on back. Both loops are stretched from being worn on a belt. Much of the stitching has split.  The leather is stiff, but shows no surface cracking of loss of finish and the belt loops and curled latch tab indicate usage which suggest this could be a “battlefield pick-up” piece.  An interesting Civil War cap pouch.  [jet]
