    "Picked up at Chambersburg Pike 906"

    U.S. .58 Caliber Cartridge Box, accompanied by a small period ink script tag reading, "Picked up at Chambersburg Pike 906" With sling and both plates, this piece was recovered from the Gettysburg battlefield. The number 906 is also clearly stamped on the lower left corner of the front flap, obviously once part of an early Gettysburg collection. Finish on the box and patent leather sling with crazing but no flaking. Both original plates with dark untouched patina. The sling shows an interesting period alteration with slits cut along the top, apparently to make it looser. It is along one of these slits that the sling has torn through, but there is no loss and displays fine. Great Gettysburg relic. From the 1st day's fighting.
