Model 1861 .58 Cartridge Box by L.S. Baker of New York with an SNY
Here is a Model 1861 cartridge box with an original SNY boxplate. This
particular box was made by L.S Baker of New York. The leather is still
pliable and there is light crazing throughout. The interior tool pouch
flap has the most crazing as can be seen in the photos. One of the
jappaned tin roller buckles is detached but it is still on the inside of
the box. Both tins are original to the cartridge box and are slightly
rusted. O'Donnell & Campbell state that this particular die pattern SNY
boxplate is of the type purchased by the State of New York during
1864-1865 and "issued almost entirely to the local militia after the
government ordered New York to stop outfitting its volunteers for
Federal Service." I have included pictures of the buckle at the bottom
of the item page.
