    Hey all

    I just got back from a car boot sale and picked up some old gun powder flask.

    Done some research online, found a few websites that have similar sort of thing to what I have:

    728: Colt style Dragoon brass powder flask, : Lot 728
    Colt First Model Dragoon Powder Flask, - Cowan's Auctions
    Colt powder flask of style associated with Colt Paterson long arms and Dragoons showing plunger to

    But can't find the exact item or any information on it. These ones seem to have the same picture on both sides, whereas mine has different ones. and also my belt clasps are on the same side, whereas the ones I find have the clasps on either side. I need anyone who can shine any information at all onto what I have here.

    Here it is below if anyone just happens to know what this thing is:

    The only thing I can add is that this particular motif is probably the most common and widely reproduced one seen on American powder-flasks...

    It looks very old, but not as old as the image suggests I think.
