US Army McKeever Cartridge Box 1904 Rock Island Arsenal

US Army McKeever Cartridge Box 1904 Rock Island Arsenal

20 rounds at your side!

Up for auction we have an antique US Army issue McKeever pattern Cartridge Pouch . This pouch holds 20 bullets; likely 45-70, or 30-06, or 30-03, or similar rifle calibers will fit.

The black leather is sturdy and pliable, and quite healthy for its age. The old US Army emblem is emblazoned on the front of the pouch. The locking flap, one belt loop, and one side of the cartridge box are loose from their stitching, but are still intact and included (and repairable with some thread). T is minor corrosion on the brass, but this should clean easily. This piece was made at the Rock Island Armory in 1904, according to the stamp on its side.

Also included is a belt fob with a loop for carrying a tool or perhaps the scabbard to a cavalry saber.

Any military historian can appreciate these antique items. They would be the perfect addition to any period costume or collection. Don't hesitate to bid!
