This is a very scarce piece of original Civil War era soldiers accoutrement. This is an original cartridge box for an Enfield pattern military rifle. This is the version that is known as the sergeants model cartridge box. The innermost compartment has the 2 large sections as well as the small section on the right-hand side that has the cover made of tin. The metal is in excellent condition as you can see in the images. It has the complete inner flap intact with both of the side "ear" covers. The underside of the outer flap has the English style stampings as well as the small broad arrow stamping with the "BO" lettering for the English Board of ordnance. It has the 1856 stamp which one would assume is the production date. The original closure tab is intact as well as the large size brass finial on the bottom of the box. It has both of the roller buckles still present as well as the strap loops on the back of the box. What really makes this one stand out is that it is still sporting the original white buff leather shoulder sling. The shoulder sling is in very fine condition for its age and displays well from all angles. You see quite a few of the American made cartridge boxes but when was the last time you had an opportunity to own an Enfield pattern cartridge box? This is a beauty so don't miss it.
