Contained in a 12” x 16” Riker case are the remains of a Federal cartridge box.  Recovered in 1974 at Harrison’s Landing, Virginia, by Jerry Duggan.  The centerpiece is the US cartridge box plate and a moderate piece of the leather outer flap.  Much of the implement pouch and flap also remain.  Brass rivets, the two small iron buckles, and the brass finial are included.  Several other scraps of leather are displayed.  Two other items of special interest that survived are the leather thong that secured the box plate and a pack of percussion caps that are all fused together.  All parts are stable and well preserved.

All items are displayed on burlap in the Riker case with old labels that were made using a manual typewriter.   [jet]
