.58 Caliber Box made by R. Nece, Philadelphia.
This late war cartridge box, made by “R. Nece” Philadelphia, and inspected by “F. A. Siffen,” is probably an un-issued item, as it shows hardly any use.
it still retains the original tins for .58 Caliber ammunition.
This pattern employed the cost saving measure of eliminating the M1839 brass/lead “US” oval plate with an embossed US in oval. Issued to State Troops.
Leather surfaces show little wear, but just typical storage wear. The inner tool pouch shows heavier crackling to leather. Would rate the condition as fine plus overall.
