Civil War Military Colt Eagle & Shield W/ 13 Stars Brass Pistol Gun Powder Flask For Sale
DESCRIPTION: This is an old miniature gun powder flask that may have originally come with an old black powder pistol, such as a Colt. It probably dates from the mid-1800’s, possibly during the Civil War. It definitely looks like a military piece. On each side, it shows 9 stars above an eagle with 2 stars beside each wing totaling 13 stars which represent the original colonies. The eagle is holding a federal shield and 5 arrows above 2 crossed pistols. There is a banner underneath with the phrase “E.Pluribus Unum”. The open and close spring is still intact.
MATERIALS: Embossed brass and steel
DIMENSIONS: Measures about 4-½ inches long.
CONDITION: Overall in VERY GOOD, USED CONDITION. It has been cleaned probably 20 years ago, and still has some polish remnants on it. It has a few very light dents.
This is a great old powder flask that will be a nice addition to any antique collection. Or, a neat piece for a Civil War collector to own.
FYI: Our pictures are taken under bright incandescent camera lighting or using a flash that sometimes fades out the colors or makes them appear brighter. This also helps to show all distinguishing features and possible flaws on the item. Most of our antiques and collectibles have much darker, deeper, richer colors than appear in some of our photos, especially reds that tend to turn orange in appearance. Most of the items are photographed on a solid black or bright white background. If you have a question about the color of this item, please feel free to ask questions, because from my monitor to your monitor, the colors may appear different. So, you might think you are offerding on a rare color, when it might be a common color.
If you win more than one item, I will combine the items for shipment and charge shipping according to weight.
