This is an original American Civil War Union cartridge box that is complete with the tin cartridge compartment liners mounted on an original belt complete with U.S. buckle. This Union piece is in remarkably good shape for it's age with leather that's black finish is somewhat flaking on the outside, but still flexible and sound underneath. The makers mark on the back of the cartridge box is still legible and reads "SH Young & Co. Newark, NJ". The U.S. inspection/issue stamp on the front flap is also still mostly legible and reads "R. White U.S. Ord. Dept." All of the stitching seems to be solid and the straps are intact. The roller buckles are also still in place on the bottom of the cartridge box. The belt that this cartridge box is mounted on is in similar condition with some of the black finish flaking off, but is also still flexible and sound underneath. It is approx 40 inches long overall and has 4 adjustment holes for the buckle. The end of the belt still has the brass keeper tabs to keep the belt squared up and neat. The "U.S." brass buckle with lead backing still has all 3 tabs and is securely attached to the belt with both tabs fixed thru the the 2 intact mounting holes on the belt. This is a very nice 100% original Union Civil War piece that would make a great companion to a 1863 Springfield rifled musket display. There are even quite a few assorted original Civil War era "minnie balls" still in the tin liners.
