Description

This small cardboard cartridge box is covered in black paper with the texture of leather.  The size of this miniature cartridge box is 4 1/2 w  x 3d and about an inch thick.  It may have held candy, but with a small cotton loop on the back, I would guess it was intended to be hung around the neck and used to hold business cards from other veterans and guests.

The condition is very good, with a few minor flaws, mostly being some paper loss under the flap.  Body is sound, and the gold transfer lettering and monogram for GAR is in good shape too.

This is a fairly early piece compared to what is out in the collection world for G.A.R.
