Original unopened package of Civil War Percussion Caps


Product Description

This is another nice item being offered, it is an original package of Civil War musket percussion caps still in its brown paper. Approximately 2 3/4" long, maybe longer if one end is a little more relaxed. This carries the original load of, I believe 15 caps, as issued. It is very similar to a paper-wrapped cartridge, using the same type paper.

It has folds on one end and was thread wrapped on the other end (thread now gone). Very clean. I unfolded one end so you can see one of the caps but cannot be positive about how many caps are in there.

It is rare to find existing packages of these caps. In Time/Life “Arms and Equipment of the Union”, there is an example of this package (see pictures). It would go great next to just about any Civil War percussion weapon.
