    Does anyone have a link to printable arsenal pack labels, or a book that has high quality images in them for scanning?

    Thanks,

    Dumb questions, but would this be Columbus, Ohio?

    Good question! I assumed this was the same "Columbus" as the Confederate jacket style that bears the name. I.e., Columbus, GA.

    But I do not know.

    Yes, Columbus, Georgia. It is a Confederate label.

    Someone bash me upside the head if I'm wrong, but I have been told that most of the repro arsenal labels are fictions created by sutlers, that the arsenals did not employ labels after the first part of the war, so anything labeled "1864" would be fanciful and not authentic.
