A nice unissued box with all the wool and cone pick.
Civil War Cap Box – R. NECE Contract, along with a boldly stamped US Ord Dept. Sub Inspector’s cartouche on the inner flap. This box is has been put away for a long time, and has not been cleaned, treated in any way. The flap shows some stress lines, and more pronounced lines at the bend at the top of the flap. Has all of the wool fleece and the cone pick inside. Stitching all tight.
Fine condition with remnants of a price tag on the back panel, with will probably clean off.
I doubt that this box saw any service.
