Heres one you almost never see come up for sale. This is an original Civil War U. Naval Yard pistol cartridge box.
It has a well defined USN on the front flap and the Navy Yard NY stamp inside with the date 1861. This one is a survivor. It survived the war and probably well after. It has two holes on the bottom on each side and one side flap was field repaired.It still has the closure strap and finial. By no means a perfect example but the only example you may encounter.
This one saw years of service and is well worn. This is the only one we have ever encountered. Note: This is a pistol cartridge box, not the larger style you typically see for a musket.
