Another Powder Flask!

Really like this one. 

Found one half and then about 30 minutes and 15-20 feet away I got the other.  Both were folded on the top and you can see where they were together when they were bent over and then just got kicked about over the last 150 years or so.

Great find. I saw a deer in my neighbors yard this morning.

Excellent find, Ron.  I love those old flasks.  Most of the people who owned them back then didn't go anywhere without them.  Such a personal relic.  Great job!

Rad.
I wonder how the design was made...
It looks hammered from other side maybe using a template?...

Not that you need another thing to buy but:

Wow, congratulation Ron, two in such a short time.  I am still waiting on my first.  That flask is also in great shape, even with the bend.

I forgot to ask, is the reverse the same?
