Original Early Hard-pack made by R. Nece & Co. of Philadelphia

A beautiful original hard-pack in complete condition made by Reuben Nece & Co. of Philadelphia. This pack still retains some of the original markings from the original owners on the front flap and on the inside of the knapsack. R. Nece & Co. had numerous contracts during the war including cartridge boxes and cap pouches. Not a lot of knapsack were made by R. Nece during the war which makes this a slightly rare piece of equipment. This is a great example of those early hard packs being issued to troops and this one coming from a booming city like Philadelphia which supplied uniforms and equipment to the federal government during and after the war makes this a really special artifact.
