This is a scarce set! It is the Civil War era cannon gunner’s tube leather pouch on the original Arsenal marked belt. This piece is illustrated on page #224 of the book Artillery and Ammunition of the Civil War by Ripley. The box itself is about 7 by 5 inches in size. It was designed to hold the friction primer tubes for firing the cannon as well as the lanyard. It has the brass finial present as is the original closure tab only retains the base as you can see in the pics. When you open the outer flap it has the inner flap nicely intact with both of the original two tabs present on the side. The back of the pouch has both of the original belt loops intact. This wonderful artifact has a gorgeous brown tone to the leather that makes it display superbly. What makes this one extra special is that it is accompanied by the original Arsenal production waist belt. These belts are very seldom encountered because they could be worn in civilian life as a standard belt. This one is full-length and it has the superb condition roller style buckle present as well. This is a very attractive and scarce gunners pouch and belt for a Civil War artilleryman.
