Both side “ears” remain tightly attached. The implement pouch is present and complete. All stitching on the box remains tight and unbroken.  Belt straps are sewn and riveted.  Large brass finial is located on the bottom of box.  The two iron roller buckles remain on bottom and are also sewn and riveted.   Box measures approximately 8 ¼” x 2” x 5” (for the .69 caliber elongated ball).

Leather is flexible and in overall very good condition. This is a nice .69 caliber infantry cartridge box.   [jet]
