Click on an image to enlarge
This is a nice looking original Civil War .58 caliber cartridge box with a tougher to find maker marking. 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 has the beautiful US cartridge box plate that has a fine look. The US on the plate can be seen from across the room. The original closure tab is missing in action but the original brass finial is still present. The outer flap has had two holes nicely patched that can be seen from the backside. On the bottom of the box it has both of the original roller buckles present. 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. It has some of the original leather shoulder sling present but it has been trimmed down in more modern times. When you open up the outer flap you can see the inner flap over the cartridge tins and the implement pouch remaining. On the inner flap of the cartridge box body you can still see the correct Civil War maker's mark of the Newark, New Jersey York firm of William John Aschenbach. This is the first time we have been able to offer one of his boxes. When you look in the innermost compartment it has both of the original cartridge box tins present. When you look at this cartridge box you wish you could talk because you can tell that this one saw lots of service and was surely used in battle. This is a nice looking Civil War 58 caliber Springfield style cartridge box by C.S. Storms.
