Here is a great looking and scarce piece! This is the highly desirable brass cartridge box for the Henry Repeating rifle. On the outer flap of the box it has the "PATENTED JAN. 27 1863 / REISSUED APL. 14 63” patent stamps. On the top of that it has "B. KITTREDGE & CO." stamped into the brass. These boxes were sold by the Cincinnati, Ohio firm of B. Kittredge. There sold many fine military pieces including these cartridge boxes and guns of all types. The brass of the box has the most beautiful honey color patina you could ever hope for. It has some light wear so you can tell that this one was actually used. On the back of the box it has both of the original strap loops intact as well as the iron spring that gold the outer flap in place. When you consider that a nice Civil War Henry rifle is over $30,000 these days then getting the cartridge box for one for under a thousand is a great deal. This is a treasure!
