    Did you check the vendor list on this forum? South Union Mills and one or two other sellers have match safes. I am not sure where to find the matches, but I believe that they should be strike anywhere matches.

      South Union Mills has a couple of wonderful match safes. The matches are getting very difficult to find, diamond makes them, but they have light green heads on them. Very inappropriate in my opinion, and very noticable by the public and other reenactors. There are two options for the red headed strike anywhere matches, one is Cartwright strike anywhere matches, only available online or in the northwestern part of the United States. The other is Red Bird strike anywhere matches, and they are only available in Canada. So pretty slim pickens unfortunately.
