    A Union Cartridge Box, Strap, and Shield Plate. This Union cartridge box and strap have excellent bridle leather that is still pliable but that has seen much wear. The brass oval "US" device attached to the front has a nice patina with only slight denting. The bridle leather strap is also in very good condition showing equal wear and is fitted with an eagle breastplate that has a nice finish as well.

    The interior of the cartridge box is in very good condition and retains its tin insert for carrying paper cartridges. The cap pouch still has its leather fastening strap that works perfectly.

    This is a great example of the Union soldier's Civil War cartridge box and shoulder strap. The strap was commonly used to allow the box to rest on the soldier's right hip. It is fitted with a wide belt loop which also allowed the box to be worn on a waist belt.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
