    Gun Powder Flask

    I pulled this 1850`s Gun Powder Flask from the bank of a stream. Not complete and damaged, but was a nice surprise find. Also got a few old bottles. I have found parts of flasks before but never one so complete.



    After a quick wash in the stream.



    Parts that I have found before.



    Cheers, Woolshed.

    That's a terrific find! I got one last year. It's complete but totally crushed. Your flask is a good find in anyone's book.
