''wat'' Inspected Colt Dragoon Plunger Flask
''WAT'' Inspected Colt Dragoon Plunger Flask (Rapley #F34), typically furnished with the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Model Dragoon. This style flask was used until approx. 1855 when the plunger flask was discontinued in favor of the sloping charger with thumb cutoff. This large flask sports the classic ''Trophy of Arms'' design, with ball compartment stamped ''Colt's Patent'' in two lines. Condition is excellent with moderately light overall patina. Minor scuffs with one small impression to body.
