This is an original Civil War cartridge box for the cavalry carbine. These carbine cartridge boxes are designed with the holes drilled into the original wooden block on the innermost compartment of the leather box. This one is missing the block on the inside. This would have allowed the soldier to hold more cartridges. The leather is still nice and pliable. The outer flap still has the original closure tab present and in fine shape. The leather displays well but has some loss to the finish. When you raise the outer flap, you are greeted by the implement pouch on the inside. It has had both of the roller buckles removed from the bottom of the box but still has the brass finial. It also has the closure tab completely intact. On the back of the box it has both of the 2 belt loops intact and in fine shape. What makes this one really stand out is that it it has a beautiful original US cartridge box plate on the outer flap of the box itself. It looks great and these plates alone can bring almost $200 these days. This is a good looking Civil War cavalry carbine cartridge box with a fine looking boxplate.
