Default Patch/Shot Box-Opinions sought.

Hi Guys,
This item has finished and sold on E-Bay, not to me. I would just like some opinions, if that's permissable, on whether it is the real thing or not. Advertised as a brass 19th Cent. Indo-Persian flint, ball and wad box, approx size 5 inches by 4 1/4inches.
Regards,
Norman.

Deffinitely Balkan, those were popular all over the peninsula and used for storing cartridges. Would have been a nice addition to your Albanian rifle.

Hi TVV,
I knew you were going to say that, I'm at this moment kicking myself furiously. Sold for 60 G.B.P., cheap at the price I think. Well you can't win them all. Thanks for the info.
My Regards,
Norman.
