This little beauty is in near mint condition as is its original casing and all accessories. It is the best I have ever seen and is ID'd in Indian Ink on the bottom of the case. It's original owner, C. H. Smith of Cooperstown, New York saw service with Battery "M" of the 3rd New York Light Artillery. It joined the regiment February 22, 1862, and served in North Carolina, and the 18th Corps, from March, 1862; at and near Fort Monroe, Va., from October, 1863; in Heckman's Division, 18th Corps, from January, 1864; in the 1st Division, 18th Corps, from March, 1864; in the 3d Division, 18th Corps, Army of the James, from May, 1864; in the Artillery Brigade, 18th Corps, from June, 1864, and in that of the 24th Corps from December, 1864. Commanded by Capt. John H. Howell, it was mustered out at Richmond, Va., June 26, 1865. Needless to say, Smith didn't take his fine little Pepperbox with him.
