CB02. PATTERN 1864 US CARTRIDGE BOX – EXCELLENT PLUS CONDITION. This Pattern 1864 US cartridge box is in all original, never cleaned, treated, or redyed, and is in excellent plus condition. The outer surfaces of the box exhibit light wear from age and use, which is expected. However, the inside is in excellent plus, near mint condition. The outer flap has light crazing, but the embossed “US” in an oval is strong. The “Latch-tab” has both a copper rivet and sewn attachment and is in solid condition and complete. The bottom of the box has both roller buckles and round brass finial. Both buckles are complete and the stitching is strong. The reverse side is in excellent condition with both belt and sling loops with little to no wear. The inner flap is in great shape and has both ears, and is maker stamped “EMetzger Philadelphia” and “H.H. HARTZELL U.S ORD. DEPT SUB INSPECTOR.” Both tins are present.  This is a great find and will make a great addition to any Civil war collection! Shipping & Insurance included. $575.00








CN04.  UCV (UNITED CONFEDERATE VETERANS) CANTEEN - ARIZONA MADE: I do not normally purchase UCV or GAR items, but this was very unique and tied to the state of Arizona, and being that my site is located in Arizona it just make sense to bring this back to the state where it was made.  Hopefully, there is a collector here in Arizona that would like it.  It is a United Confederate Veteran (UCV) canteen made for a Confederate reunion.  It is a miniature copy of a Confederate tin canteen, measure 4" x 4" with a tin screw top, with a linen sling.  Perfect for whiskey or tequila.  On the front you can see the faint outline of the letters "UCV" and on the back you can see the makers information: "O K" "Angel Contreras" "Wickenburg." The 1880 US Federal Census records shows Angel Contreras listed as a Tinsmith, and Wickenburg is a town in Arizona just west of Phoenix.  He most likely made this canteen for one of the few Confederate reunions held in Arizona.  Arizona play a small part in the Civil War, but after the war many veterans ended up in the state because of the gold, silver & copper mines.  The canteen is in outstanding condition! Here is a unique piece of American history tied to both the Civil War and the state of Arizona.  $350.00
