There is an inscription on the collar of "151 York St. New Haven Conn." This is in the middle of Yale University property and was most likely a single home at one time. This flask is 8.5" long by 3.5" wide. This was accompanied by an excellent condition unmarked but identified Dixon shot pouch with tight stitching, outstanding leather and functional charger. Item is about 7.5 inches long in total, leather pouch is 5.5 inches long by 3.25 inches wide at widest. The final item is another Dixon rare leather covered metal flask with a Patent top with broken spring and fused charger.
