Scarce Complete Original Civil War Mann's Patent 40 Round Infantry Cartridge Box:
Offered is an overall very nice condition scarce, complete, Mann's Patent June 7th, 1864 40 round infantry cartridge box. All straps are present and firmly attached. The leather is quite pliable. The only issues relate to flaking on the straps and box, as well as, a torn latch tab.The tear is a minor issue and can easily be repaired.Verdigris is also present on the brass parts that can be scraped and removed.The patent information that surrounds the US on the box flap is barely readable. The patented tin liner is present with a fully functional lower tray that slides freely. The leather has shrunk around the tin liner and it is NOT recommended that you attempt to remove it. The leather could use a preserving treatment. However, the cartridge box is untouched as found. Although this box is very hard to find in complete condition, I am offering it at a starting low opening offer far below the actual value. Shipping and insurance are free. No international sale.
