Click on an image to enlarge
This is a neat piece at a nice price! It is a United States navy cartridge box. The outer flap that would have originally had the "USN" embossing but it is no longer visible. The bottom of the box has the original brass finial intact and in fine shape. After the Civil War the cartridge box was converted to alternate uses. They removed the regular belt loops off of the back and replaced them with a large single loop. On the inside of the box they removed the inner pouches that would have held the gun's implements. They also removed the tins from the innermost compartments and this one has the wooden block inserted. The did this to allow the more modern (late 1800's) cartridges to fit more easily into the box. This is a fine displaying box that has seen a few lives in its time.
