PATTERN 1860 ENFIELD CARTRIDGE BOX WITH SLING

$5,500.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 953-70

This English cartridge box is constructed of black bridle leather with the exception of a white buff leather closing tab. This closing tab is dark and soiled but remains tightly stitched to outer flap. Under this flap, on the inside, is a clear maker’s stamp, “Isaac Campbell & Co. / 71 Jermyn St. / London”. There is no inner flap. Complete with cartridge tin which is in good condition with all inner dividers. Iron roller buckles, wide belt loops, and distinctive brass finial are all present and in place. This pattern did not have the integral cap pouch. These were imported during the war by the Confederacy as well as several Northern states. In used condition showing wear and rubs on the edges as well as some surface dirt and light mold on inside surfaces. Stitching is weak or separated in several places, and was re-stitched in other areas.

The accompanying sling has been on the box a long time but is not an Enfield sling. The sling is a regulation federal sling that was cut for an eagle breast plate.

An example of a cartridge box rarely offered for sale with an excellent maker’s stamp.   [jet]
