This is an original Civil War cartridge box for the cavalry carbine. These carbine cartridge boxes are designed with the holes drilled into the original wooden block on the innermost compartment of the leather box. The leather is still nice and pliable. The outer flap still has the original closure tab present and in fine shape. The leather displays well but has some loss to the finish. When you raise the outer flap, you are greeted by the remnants of the tough to find maker’s mark of the Newark, New Jersey firm of Edwin A. Crossman & Company. In the maker's book they state that they only produced carbine cartridge boxes under ONE contract for the US Government. They had an Army contract in 1864 and 1865 for only 2,500 boxes on each date. They didn't make any after the Civil War according to records. The implement pouch is still present as well on the inside. It has both of the roller buckles still present on the bottom of the box as well as the brass finial. It also has the closure tab completely intact. On the back of the box it has both of the 2 belt loops intact and in fine shape. This is a good looking Civil War cavalry carbine cartridge box with a scarce maker marking.
