Here is a piece that you seldom see offered for sale. It is an original Civil War pistol size cartridge box for the U.S. Navy. On the outer flap it has the embossed " USN" still clearly visible on the leather. When you raise the outer flap you see it was altered for use after the war. They removed the inner flap and it has had the original implement compartment removed. Almost all of these boxes were altered after the Civil War for other uses. On the innermost compartment it has had the original cartridge tin removed. On the bottom of the box it has the original closure finial which is made of brass as well as the original closure tab. On the reverse of the box it has the original belt loop still intact. This is a tough to find original Civil War pistol cartridge box from the U.S. Navy that has a lot of character.
