Original U. S. Civil War Percussion Pistol Cartridge Box Colt 1860 Army
An original percussion pistol cartridge box by J. This is the style with the closing tab both stitched and riveted in place. The front flap measures 6-1/8" wide by 4" high. The brass finial (stud) is the pear-shaped style. The inside measures 3-1/2" deep, 5" wide and about 1 front-to-back. Davy mark is barely discernable on the front flap below the rivet. Shephard inspector mark is visible on the flap's lower left corner. The leather is dark and pliable, not dry. The closing tab and belt loops are flexible and don't appear to be in danger of breaking or falling off.

Some of the surface layer has flaked off. See the left belt loop, for example. Inside, the thin piece that lines the front panel has moved away from the front panel. But it's still sewn on the edges. Storing the box with something inside to preserve the shape would be helpful.

One of a small number of original Civil War cartridge boxes we have for sale. A second example of the percussion pistol box, an 1864 pattern rifle box, a cavalry carbine box, and a McKeever box are listed separately or elsewhere.
