    Rare U.S. Pattern 1839 Cartridge Box and White Buff Sling. The box itself measures approximately 7" x 6" x 1.5". The outer flap has a single-stitched latch tab and the inner flap has ears on each end which are also single stitched. Mounted to the outer flap is an original circular brass cartridge box plate with a double rim that borders the "US" on the face of the plate. The implement pouch is likewise single stitched and is complete with flap, detached closure strap and loop. The bottom of the box is complete with round brass finial and two roller buckles for attaching the sling. Complete with inner tins. No markings are visible. The buff leather sling is about 2" wide and is complete with an original circular brass eagle breast plate. The box is scuffed with some crazing to the remaining finish but the leather is pliable and in very good condition. The sling shows modest use and some storage wear but remains supple and in excellent condition. A particular hard to find configuration.

    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.
