1862 DATE WATERTOWN ARSENAL CAP BOX

$350.00

DESCRIPTION

An 1862 dated Watertown Arsenal cap box in near mint condition. Cap box is black leather with interior flap. Inside of box still has all of the lambs wool which acted as a cushion for the percussion caps and the vent pick which was a standard tool issued with every cap box. Two leather belt loops on reverse fastened by rivets both top and bottom. A crisp Arsenal stamp is located on inner flap.

Only 600 sets of accoutrements were made by Watertown Arsenal during 1862 so is considered scarce, I think the only one I have seen.

CONDITION

   Exceptional condition with just minor loss of finish on latch tab and some loss on belt loops. Leather has never had a preservative applied and is as original as you can get. Lambs wool is completely intact. Excellent Arsenal stamping on interior flap.
