    Gettysburg Battlefield Recovered Civil War Cap Box. Standard infantry cap box but completely unmarked, no tool marks, very thin leather inner flap and the latch tab cut off center providing indications of possible Confederate origin. Neatly carved in ½" letters across the front "Kelly". The back of the box, under the belt loops displays a 1½" X 2½" period ink script tag with the following information, "Cap-box/ Found on the field of/ Gettysburg/ 3 days after the fight by/ N. B. Broomall". Excellent sound condition and a great Gettysburg relic.
