I found this online recently, I'd been looking for one for some time. It's listed in Lord's Civil War Collectors Encyclopedia. It's a Goodyears patent hard rubber match safe, made by the Novelty Rubber Co between 1855 and 1872. Also pictured is another early rubber matchsafe with the name GB Bohling engraved on the side. Possibly a solider?

I was curious to see if anyone else collected hard rubber items as well? I look forward to hearing any stories, and seeing others collections!
