The photo below shows an antique unpierced patch box made by the gunsmith Peter White. The engraving incorporates what may be intended as a Masonic symbol: Dividers. The engraving also incorporates crossed rulers. The outer peripheral shape of this unpierced patch box matches that of a pierced patch box that is mounted on a muzzle loading long rifle attributed to Peter White that sold at auction for $15,000.00 on October 15, 2013. Peter White was a gunsmith in Bedford County, Pennsylvania before moving to Fayette County.
