Pass boxes were used by the gunner to carry live artillery-cartridges from a magazine to the piece. This pass box is a leather cylinder, with a lid, and has a leather sling. The sling is one piece with no buckle. Bottom is stamped “U.S.N.Y. / BOSTON” and also stenciled in white paint, “32 / Pdr.”  This measures approximately 13 ¾” high x 6 ¼” in diameter. Sling measures approximately 52” long.

Leather on box and lid has some minor surface cracking. All stitching is tight. The strap shows moderate surface cracking which to be expected since the strap gets the most use. Overall this is in very good and solid shape.   [jet]
