Mid-Civil War Union Issue Percussion Cap Box
Mid-Civil War Union Issue Percussion Cap Box – This cap box is a good, solid example of the mid-war issue, US cap box. The box retains one of the original side ears, attached to the flap. None of the lamb’s wool remains, inside the box, although the buckskin to which the wool was attached, is still in place. The nipple pick is not present, but we can supply an original example, for a slight additional cost. Both belt loops are riveted to the box, as are the mid to late war boxes; both loops are strong and totally intact. This is a good example of a war-used, issue, Union percussion cap box.
