civil war csa / c.s.n. confederate states navy leather cartridge box

original confederate navel cartridge box

differently constructed , unlike any known U.S. box.

not cut for plate.

unquestionably a Confederate box

a Confederate naval Cartridge Box

an extremely scarce artifact

this exemplifies the type of equipment often used by the beleaguered Confederates.

The body of the box is 7" x 5" with a single wide rear belt loop , about 3" wide at the top

it has a thin leather outer flap

the inner sides of the box are made of thin WOOD ,..

unfortunately , - a {probably yankee} field mouse had at some time , long ago ,..... chewed its way into the box ,...making slightly enlarged passageways at both ends ,.. the damage isn't all that bad -- and it is limited to the upper ends of the sides

the inner tool /implement pouch, although still mostly intact , the small flap is gone , & it is extremely weakened and portions have deteriorated

there is a wider tool pouch on the right side of the right box side

The outside flap of the box shows great age and is thin and weak in the creases

this was an old barn find or battle field pickup , it comes completely untouched, except for a treatment of 'pacards' leather treatment it recently received { because it was dry and fragile } --

C.S. rebel naval leather gear is nearly impossible to find today , a must have for all advanced civil war military & maritime collectors this is identical to what would have been carried by the sailors on board the CSS Virginia ( ex-USS merrimack } and the famous rebel raider the CSS ALABAMA

you just don't see good examples offered any more ,savvy collectors have been grabbing them up

it is hard to find an example at any price -

don't pass it up

real csa navy civil war issue 149 years old !
