.58 caliber U.S. pattern 1857 cartridge box and sling, complete. The leather box is in excellent condition with only light wear consistent with age. Attached to the outer front flap is a brass "US" oval cartridge box plate in very nice condition with light patina. The latch tab is very good and buckles are present. The inner flap and implement pocket match the rest of the box in condition. Both tins are present. The sling is in fine pliable condition overall with light crackling. Stamped at the center of sling is maker's mark. The top line is somewhat difficult to make out, the bottom line reads "PORTLAND 1862". Attached to the sling is a brass eagle breast plate in good condition with a smooth even patina. This is an honest, early war rig.
