This excavated grip cap for single shot pre-Civil War pistol likely dates to the late 1700s to the early 1800s. It is constructed of cast brass which has a mostly light green patina. Recovered by a local Virginia relic hunter, the device shows a figure on a horse on two sides and what appears to me to be a Palmetto tree on the other two sides. One of the side straps is bent inward to the other. It measures approximately 1-7/8 inches in diameter and 2-5/8 inches from top to less bent side strap tip. It weighs 2.846 ounces. An image of a flintlock pistol with a similar, but not exact, example of a grip cap is included in the additional images. This grip cap will be an excellent addition to any pre-Civil War firearm or general relic collection.
