Black leather cartridge box with embossed eagle ornamentation on 9 3/4" wide flap. The leather strap that secures the flap to the bottom of the box is missing. Inside the box, beneath a linen cover, is a wooden block. The block is bored to hold 26 cartridges in three rows. Below the wood block is a tin case with three compartments. A flap on the front of the cartridge box allows for access to the center compartment. A leather billet is sewn on the back of the cartridge box at the top. The billet has loops through which the ends of the shoulder belt pass. On the bottom of the box are two metal roller buckles for the ends of the shoulder belt.
