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 has a brass buckle for adjusting the length. Bottom is stamped “30 PR* / 1684 / PA* N*Y*”. Obviously the “6” and “8” were accidentally switched. Stamped on top of the lid is “30 PR* / 1864 / PA* N*Y*”. This measures 16.5” high x 4.75” in diameter. Sling measures ~63” long.

Leather on box and lid has some surface cracking but is supple. All stitching is tight. The strap shows heavy surface cracking which to be expected since the strap gets the most use. There is an old break in the strap which has a well stitched, contemporary repair.  [jet]
