This is a neat piece! It is a United States navy box. The outer flap has the embossing still crispy visible. The bottom of the box has the original brass finial intact and in fine shape. The inner flap is still intact and has the vividly clear stamp of "*NAVY YARD / PHIL'A / 1862" in the center of the flap. This is the box that would have held the packs that held the paper time fuzes for the Civil War artillery shell fuzes. This would have been a necessity for the artilleryman that wore it.
