This black saddle leather box began life as a Hagner Number 2 type cartridge box. The inside was altered by adding a wooden box

Overall, the leather is in excellent condition. The exterior flap has a very faint embossed “US” in an oval with parallel tooled lines along the edge. Flap has a tab that is attached by single line stitching and a copper rivet. Tab shows surface wear but it is solid.

The interior holds a wood block with four 1.00 circular holes. It is believed that these are for carrying either flare cartridges or fuses.

The exterior of the box has a brass finial at bottom and belt loops on the reverse. The belt loops appear to have been cut at center and then repaired by passing a rawhide string through holes cut in each half and then knotted.  [AD] [ph:L]
