    Description

    Rare Civil War Carbine Cartridge and Scarce Jeb Stuart Sword Hanger Set. Both pieces about mint. The carbine cartridge box is of exceptional quality with beaded edge on the flap, US Ord. Dept. Stamp in oval at lower left of flap. Maker's mark on inside flap of W. L. Wilkinson, Springfield, Mass. Wooden block inside bored for 20 cartridges with seven of the original .56.52 Spencer cartridges remaining. Although unmarked we believe this to be a 7th Connecticut Infantry cartridge box. The unit was armed with Spencer rifles and carried two of these carbine boxes as part of their belt equipment. This example is near perfect with just some minor finish crazing, very sound and supple and an extremely nice box. The very scarce sword hanger is marked on the back of the clip "FRANKFORD ARSENAL" and on the back of the suspension loop with an old English US. Marked on the longer of the two sword slings "A. D. LAIDLEY / U. S. / ORD. DEPT. / SUB-INSPECTOR" The belt clip retains most of the original gilt with the leather sling straps and brass closure buttons near perfect. Choice example of a very rare piece of equipment.
