Early .58cal cartridge box in good condition. The box retains both tins. The leather is somewhat pliable and the outer flap as you can see has an original cartridge box plate. The outer flap latch is is present but is split. Both japanned buckles for the shoulder strap are present underneath. The belt loops are also present on the back. The crudeness of this box as well as the inner utility pouch design and material indicates is most likely a state or militia contract box. There is no markings noted and I have been told is related to Ohio troops from other known specimens.
