Description
Small, plain, cylindrical, black-japanned container with a friction-fit, flat cover stamped from one piece and a two-piece container with flat bottom folded over the soft-soldered lapped seam body. Both cover and container have plain edges, the container with a raised bead below. No marks. Appears to be a percussion cap tin that has lost its label.
