This is a Federal cap box manufactured during the American Civil War. There are no maker marks or stamps, but it was obviously made for the Union army. The leather on this pouch is a little dry and stiff. About 50 percent of the original black has flaked off, leaving a buff leather appearance. The stitching is still very strong and has no breaks. The brass finial is present, the closure tab is still reporting for duty and is 100% intact! The two belt loops are securely attached to the pouch. The wool and pick are long gone. The little box still displays great, and would be a nice addition to any Civil War display.
