During the US Civil War, musket caps were required for most of the military long arms. Whether it was a Springfield, Enfield, Sharps, Smith, Maynard, Burnside, etc. you needed a percussion cap to set off the charge. Many of the ammunition packets contained caps inside. They were usually rolled in little packets. But in some cases, extra caps were sent in larger tins. These tins were used to supplement the caps that were lost or became damaged due to moisture.

This is a Civil War cap tin, which would have been originally issued with the US or CS ammunition. The tin is in great shape, and most of the original label is still present. The label is dark, but you can read 250 Waterproof MUSKET CAPS. The tin contains all original Civil War percussion caps. While not counted, the can is full. This is an extremely rare item, with a very low survival rate. An unusual opportunity to acquire a magnificent collectible…
