Classic Civil War carbine cartridge box. All belt loops, buckles and tabs are in place, including the original interior wood block. The outer flap shows some light crazing, and the leather is somewhat dry, but there is no significant flaking or finish loss. The inner flap is marker “E. Gaylord,” a large manufacturer of Civil War accoutrements in Chicopee, Massachusetts. The outer flap measures 8” wide. A nice example of the universal style of carbine box issued to the Union Cavalry.
