    Calvary Carbine Cartridge Box SOLD

    This is a example of a cartridge box used by the calvary.   It is shorter than the infantry cartridge box.  It has a wood block with 20 holes drilled for carbine cartridges.  This block has holes 0.56 of an inch in diameter.  I have been told by a knowledgable collector that this diameter is for Burnside cartridges.  Since the calvary used so many caliber of carbines. The box was designed for a wood block that could accommodate different sizes of holes.  

    This box is solid and marked J Davey Newark NJ.  It is configured for both waist belt and shoulder belts.  The box is complete and the stitching is solid.
