Original U.S. Civil War Federal Model 1864 Cartridge Box with .58 Caliber Minie Balls

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. Very nice condition Civil War leather cartridge box. Cleanly embossed US on outer flap. The outer surfaces of the box exhibit expected wear, stiffens and crazing from age and use. The box still has the closure tab and brass finial at the bottom. Both roller buckles are present on the bottom of the box. The reverse of the box has the entire belt and shoulder strap loops still intact. The over the shoulder carry sling is still attached. These were designed so the box could have been worn on the soldier’s belt or on a sling, whichever the soldier preferred. The inner flap is in fine shape and has both ears. Inside the innermost compartment are both the original tins that held the cartridges in place. Inside the tins there are twelve .58 caliber Minie balls included, with more inside but the tins are stuck in place and we do not want to pry them loose for fear of damaging the leather. Overall a fantastic piece of Federal issue used during the civil war, put away and forgotten!
