DESCRIPTION

An early war cartridge box for the Model 1855 pistol-carbine. The box is made very similar to a rifle-musket box but scaled down in size. The interior has a single, four compartment tin. The box also has a tool pouch with flap and closure tab. The belt loops are attached with thread and a single rivet on each, indicating 1861 manufacture. The outer closure tab is sewn.

A scarce cartridge box with very few having been produced during the war.
