In a purchase of several authentic bullets, both round ball and Minie' there were about a half a dozen percussion caps.
these caps are considerably darker copper than what you see today and the inside has a red tinge on the bottom of the cap with a white circle in the middle.
I was wondering if these may be genuine period caps. At the time of purchase, there were no claims made as tho the authenticity, they were just included. Rich Schimenti firstname.lastname@example.org
