On the outer flap it has the beautiful US cartridge box plate that has a fantastic look. The US on the plate can be seen from across the room. The original brass finial is present on the bottom of the box. The closure tab has been lost to the ages. 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 pretty and well worn shape. This is the version that was made with the holes and it has a beautiful original breastplate.
