Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. Original Federal Issue Carbine Cartridge Box in excellent complete condition. This box is a nice example of the “universal” style of carbine box that became standard, with a removable wood block that could be changed to fit a variety of different cartridges. The box has the typical mid-war style of attaching the latch tab by the means of a rivet and semi-circle of stitching, but still conforms to older specifications in having a horizontal belt loop and bottom buckles for use on a shoulder sling that was rarely employed. Unfortunately the tab is torn by the hole for securing the tab.

This is a nice example of a Civil War “Universal” Carbine Cartridge Box that has great color and finish. All belt loops, buckles and tabs are in place, as is interior wood block bored out for twenty carbine cartridges. (Spencer rounds fit perfectly.) The cover shows some minute crazing from flexing and the reverse some handling marks. There is some flaking to the outer finish of the leather. The tabs and inner flap show a deep luster. There are even maker marks still present:
