This is a FINE condition example of the fairly scarce powder flask for the Starr percussion revolvers. These “Eagle & Stars” motif flasks are identifiable as being for the Starr revolvers by the long, angled charging spout. The copper flask shows a spread-winged American Eagle clutching an American shield and arrows with its talons, along with the usual olive branches that are associated with this motif. The Eagle & Shield surmount a pair of crossed revolvers, all of which are over the United States motto E Pluribus Unum in a ribbon at the bottom of the flask’s body. The flask body measures 3 ¾-inches in length, with a 1 19/32-inch spout and an overall length of 5 ¼-inches. The flask has a lovely, untouched ocher patina with clear motifs embossed on both sides. The flask is solid and complete, with only a couple of tiny push dings present and solid seams throughout. The end of the spout shows several dings, and the end has more of a triangular appearance now than  a round one, but this is the only real condition issue. The flask is fully functional, and the original charger spring is in place, although the springs does show some light pitting. Overall this is a very nice condition example of a scarce powder flask. The last one  I saw for sale was nearly $800, so this one is very reasonably priced. This would be a fine addition to display with your Starr revolver(s), especially to fill a hole in a case Starr set that is missing the correct flask.
