i picked this up at an antique dealer and since I know nothing about powder horns I thought I'd post photos here to see if anyone knows anything about them.

I know the nozzle is missing. Also there are no makers mark on it.

Thanks in advance.

The wooden part looks like it was turned on a high speed/modern lathe. But I'm no expert.

It seems that the ones with significant age do not have the same tops, the same markings, or such.  Look for yourself.

This is a reproduction buffalo powder horn made for reinactment. It is also missing the arm or shoulder sling. It is mostly machine made and retails (new) as per the link for $17.95.

Possibly you can obtain the missing parts and make yours complete again; whether it's worth the cost and shipping is up to you.
