    Classic Confederate Manufactured Lead Finial Cap Box. Possibly an early battlefield recovery with initials "R W J" deeply carved on the front flap. Loaded with character as quintessentially Confederate as any cap box you will ever see.
    Condition: Overall very dry and stiff with the stitching popped and the box now actually in four pieces. Square cut front flap, which seems to have been preferred by Confederate manufacturers. Very long latch tab, 3/8" diameter squat rounded lead finial. The original wide single belt loop is missing but the stitching/holes for it are present. The end panels on the inside flap are also missing. Remarkably the finish on the leather is excellent with no cracking or flaking.
