Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a neat little cartridge box. It is the pattern illustrated and described on page 400 and 401 of the wonderful book by Edward Scott Meadows, U.S. Military Holsters and Pistol Cartridge Boxes. These small size cartridge boxes were to be used with the .38 and .45 caliber revolvers. This one has the "US" embossed on the outer flap. The bottom of the box has the brass finial intact. On the back of the box, it has both of the original belt loops. Between the loops, it has the Rock Island Arsenal maker's marking. It also has the inspector initials of "E.H.S.". The inside compartment is open now but would have had a wooden block when it left the arsenal. This is a nice looking displays piece that is affordable.
