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 a few 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.
