This is a scarce cartridge box! It is the U.S. model 1839 cartridge box that was designed for the .69 caliber cartridges. On the back of the box it has the horizontal shoulder strap loops but not the vertical straps like the later boxes. The outer flap has the U.S. cartridge box plate attached. The plate has the crystal clear "US" on the outer brass. When you raise the outer flap you are greeted by the inner flap and small implement compartments. The inner flap has the remnants of the desirable maker mark from the firm of H.A. Dingee who was located in New York City. Both of the original cartridge tins are missing from the innermost compartment. On the bottom of the box it has one of the roller buckles and the brass finial. As you can see the closure tab is only half present. The leather on the box still displays well especially for the price. This is a scarce box and has the very desirable Dingee maker mark.
