No. 2, 7 in. long; center, early set of sheet steel blasting cap crimpers, stamped on front THE METALLIC CAP MFG CO, and on reverse GOLD MEDAL CAPS.

Measures 5 1/2 in. long, with a brass covered punch for inserting the cap into a stick of dynamite. Sheet steel crimpers are among the earliest of the cap crimpers, these likely date to the 1890's.
