This is a nice looking original Civil War .58 caliber cartridge box. This is the style box that would have been used with any of the .58 caliber Springfield or contract maker made rifles of the Civil War. On the outer flap it had the beautiful US cartridge box plate replaced by the soldier using a puppy paw style US belt buckle that has a fantastic look. The US on the plate can be seen from across the room. As you can see, the flap has rolled up on the lower edges. The original brass finial is present on the bottom of the box. The closure tab is missing in action. On the bottom of the box it has both of the roller buckles. On the back of the box it has all of the attachment loops. This style of cartridge box could have been used with a shoulder strap or put on the belt either way. When you open up the outer flap you can see the inner flap and the implement pouch which are both complete. When you look in the innermost compartment it has both of the original cartridge box tins present. These are what the cartridges actually went inside while they were carrying them. The original leather shoulder sling is present and in fine shape. This is the version that was made with the holes and it has a beautiful original breastplate. This is a nice looking authentic Civil War cartridge box to display with your .58 caliber Springfield or contract maker rifle.
