Retains a nice dark patina.  Good spring tension.  Has a small eyelet on either side for a strap.  Missing the small pin that locks the measuring spout.  There is a dent and small split along the seam on the bottom.  Really a neat old flask that's marked both BATTY and 1853, a marking usually found on "peace flasks".  This is the same size and shape of a standard peace flask.  Appears to be made of copper or a very dark brass.  This is certainly for a musket.
