A rare artillery item are the pendulum Hausse sights for cannon, and many time found, when found, are not accompanied with the case.
Seldom seen are the Civil War Pendulum Hausse cannon sights, and usually when found do not have the original cases that they were carried in. This particular original case, is in fine condition with little issues to speak of.
The case is complete with the original russet strap and japanned roller buckle, attached to the 8.5 inch case (approx.) that is marked US ARSENAL SR. LOUIS.
Some light scuffing is found on the lower section of the case, and normal light rubbing along the various edges. I doubt if a better specimen can be obtained without serious involvement of time.
A scare piece of Civil War Federal Artillery.
