#14465 - Brass Cartridge Box lined with Plaster
This is a very cool brass Cartridge Box. It is lined with plaster. I suppose it prevented injury to the soldier if the powder of cartridges ignited from a bullet strike. (This sometimes occurred when standard leather cartridge boxes sparked from a shrapnel strike!) This has a heavy gauge wire belt loop. There are no maker's markings. It reminds me of the 1863 Kittridge brass cartridge boxes, but is by another manufacturer. About 4 by 2 by 2. Lid works fine. Uncommon item. Custom bought by the trooper.
