This carbine cartridge box is a nice, original example of the classic leather accoutrement carried by Federal mounted forces during the Civil War. This specimen is constructed of strong, supple, black bridle leather. Box is not marked. The interior features a drilled wooden block 7.75 inches long by 1.50 inches wide and 2.00 inches high. Block has the capacity to hold twenty paper cartridges or twenty .52 caliber, metallic rimfire cartridges.

When closed, the large leather outer flap and smaller inner flap protect the ammunition in the carbine box. The strong outer flap has a mild scalloped front edge. Leather is very good with just minor surface crazing near the edges and flex points. Stitched to the center edge of the main flap is a leather closure tab that is supple with some creasing. Tab fits nicely into the pear-shaped brass finial located at the bottom of the box. All box stitching appears strong with both end pieces, a.k.a. ears, sewn to the inner flap. One is slightly bent. Inner flap is good with heavy surface crazing. Inner flap closes over a small implement pouch sewn to the front of the box. Bottom of box has both original black japanned roller buckles. On the box’s back side are two vertical, leather belt loops with a single horizontal leather strip.

A nice representative example of a Civil War Federal carbine cartridge box.   [AD]
