U.S. PATTERN 1861 INFANTRY CARTRIDGE BOX MARKED “WATERTOWN ARSENAL 1864” WITH BRASS PLATE AND TINS

$595.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 490-6251

Pattern 1861 US cartridge box in very good condition. The outer flap is adorned with the lead-filled, stamped brass “US” cartridge box plate. This plate is held in place by the original leather thong. There is very little “crazing” of the bridle leather surface overall. The latch-tab is complete and unbroken. Leather has been treated and remains supple.

The inner flap is marked “WATERTOWN / ARSENAL / 1864”. The two side “ears” remain firmly attached.

The implement pouch is complete and good in every way. Both cartridge tins remain in place. The bottom of the box features the typical brass finial and both roller buckles. All stitching remains strong.  Horizontal and vertical belt loops remain attached to the back.

A very nice example of a Civil War infantry cartridge box.  [jet] [ph:L]
