This is a nice looking original Civil War .58 caliber cartridge box. This is the style box that would have been used with any of the .58 caliber Springfield or contract maker made rifles of the Civil War. On the outer flap it has the beautiful US cartridge box plate that has a fantastic look. The US on the plate can be seen from across the room. The original brass finial is present on the bottom of the box. The closure tab is torn and is inside the box itself. On the bottom of the box it has both of the roller buckles. On the back of the box it has all of the attachment loops. This style of cartridge box could have been used with a shoulder strap or put on the belt either way. When you open up the outer flap you can see the inner flap and the implement pouch which are both complete. On the inner flap you can still see part of the correct Civil War maker's mark of the New York firm of Baker & McKinney. Baker & McKinney had a contract for 10,000 sets of infantry accoutrements on September 14th 1864. This is likely one of those made for that order. When you look in the innermost compartment it has one original .69 caliber version of cartridge box tin present. The original leather shoulder sling is present and in fine shape. This is the version that was made without the holes and would have never had a breastplate. This is a nice looking authentic Civil War cartridge box by Baker & McKinney.
