Maker Marked Civil War Percussion Cap Box
Item #: AA3146
This is a Federal cap box manufactured during the American Civil War. The maker mark on the inner flap is of Boyd & Sons of Boston, Massachusetts. Boyd had contracts for accoutrements with the Army before the Civil War, dating back to 23 May, 1845. In October 1862 and November 1863 they were under contract to provide 9000 sets of Infantry accoutrements. The stamp reads "BOYD & SONS/BOSTON". There is a faint outline of another stamp below the Boyd stamp, an oval but I can't make out what it says. The leather on this pouch is still very pliable. The outer flap shows minor crazing along the top of flap. 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 present and still strong enough to be worn on a belt. The wool and pick are no longer with the box! The little cap box still displays great, and would be a nice addition to any Civil War display.
