Z1258 Federal June 1864 Type II Pattern Cartridge Box (W.H. Wilkinson /G.T. Woodbury Sub Inspector)
Description: Here is an outstanding example of a June 1864 pattern cartridge box. This is the best one I have seen in years. The face is embossed US within an oval and there is a very crisp sub inspector mark of G.T. Woodbury. The inner flap and pocket are in great shape. The interior flap is marked W.H.Wilkinson. Both Jappaned buckles are still firmly attached and the stitching is excellent! The original tins are inside and still shiny. This box must have been tucked away for many years. Unfortunately, my nicer camera and lighting system is down. The pictures don't do this one justice. The leather is still pliable and the top flap has minute crazing. If you like excellent leather, this one may be for you!
