CONFEDERATE PERCUSSION CAP POUCH

$975.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 953-74

This is a very nice example of a Confederate-made percussion cap pouch. In good condition, this pouch looks like an anorexic version of its northern counterpart. The whole pouch is constructed of pig skin which has been tarred. The back and front flap is one piece. The latch tab sewn to the flap and is complete but weak at the hole. There is moderate cracking and crazing to the finish on the outer flap. The finial is brass. The single belt loop is of the same thin leather and 1” wide…a definite Confederate characteristic. There is no inner flap.  No lamb’s wool. Leather is slightly stiff. All stitching is complete and tight. This is as typical a Confederate percussion cap pouch as you can get.   [jet]
