Great looking Ames Peace Flask. Top is lightly marked NP Ames. The 1838 is correctly on the other side but too light to photograph on a dark background. It is there, though. Patina is darker on one side, probably from laying one direction for decades in its last home. Most interestingly is the strap that I have never actually seen on one of these. The tip end piece on the tip is missing but this is figured into the price and balanced with the presence of the strap. Inspector marks by eagle on one side look like WS. There are a few pings and dings along the bottom edge which are to be expected in real examples. Wonderful item.
