    Civil War .58 Caliber Cartridge Box, Sling and Both Plates with 39 .58 Caliber Rounds Still Inside. Still retaining a nearly full complement, 39 rounds, of .58 caliber paper wrapped cartridges, along with tompion and nipple wrench. Box excellent, just some wrinkles on the corners and very minor crazing on the finish on a few small areas, absolutely no flaking. Both original plates perfect with nice dark patina. Cartridges, including blue cleaner rounds, all excellent. "W. H. P." neatly carved on the back of the box, which is also maker marked on the inside flap, "Garcelon & Covell Lewiston, Me. 1863". Exactly as found.
