Item #: FDR14-232

Here is a nice looking M1864 .58caliber cartridge box marked as made by the contractor 'Oliver'. The leather is pliable and does show some wear. It appears that it has been conserved with a light wax which has made the leather remarkably stable. The embossed 'US' on the outer flap can be seen as can the Ordinance inspector's mark in the lower corner. It retains the shoulder strap buckles and the belt loops on the back.

The tins are present and original. The leather shows some crazing throughout, but retains the outer flap latch, finial, and inner utility pouch. Nice artifact for the price.
