    I have a similar item. Mine is attached to my father's Great grandfather leather powder bag from the Civil War. With the CSA and 1860 marking I would venture a guess that it used to be attached to a similar bag used for loading powder into cartridges during the Civil War. Hope this might help.

    Carving is bogus modern made-- can't be certain on the rest of the powder horn (need better pictures), but I suspect it is all modern.

    Value is less than $20.

    The modern carver was a poor geography and history student.

    The East "E" and West "W" are reversed.

    The C.S.A. didn't exist until 1860.

    Correct-- I was a poor typing student.
