Cartridge box is the Pattern of July 1864, Type 2 for .58 elongated ball cartridges.

The leather on the box is excellent showing only minor surface wear. The exterior flap has a strongly embossed “US” at center. Latch tab is solid and is held to the underside of the flap by a single straight line of stitching and a copper rivet. Tip of the tab bears a readable Sub-Inspector’s mark.

The interior flap is solid and in nice condition with both ears. It is marked in an oval at the bottom edge with “H. G. HAEDRICH. PHILADA.” Both tins are present on the inside. Implement pocket is complete and solid and also in nice condition.

The bottom of the box has both roller buckles and the pear-shaped brass finial. Reverse has both beltloops and sling loops which are strong. Bottom of loops are sewn and riveted.

Sling looks to be a reproduction as it is much thicker than those normally seen but it does have some age to it and matches the box well.

The maker of the box, Henry G. Haedrich, had several contracts for leather accoutrements beginning in October of 1862 with the last one being in January-February 1865.  [ad] [ph:L]
