In the early 1970's Colt re-introduced many of the black powder revovers. The attention to detail was amazing. At the same time, Colt reintroduced the case accoutrements that accompnied these revolvers. Bullet molds, powders flasks, nipple wrenches etc. all became part of Colt's plan for this re-introduction. Another of the items introduced were the cap tins. The cap tins we are selling are the original Colt re-production tins. The picture is generic. You can see the small spot of rust on the bottom. Many of our tins exhibit a tiny amount of this rust. You can't go wrong with an original Colt cap tin.
