A nice example in untouched condition.
Hagner No.2 Cartridge Pouch – Modified for Cavalry Use. This variant had the brass finial and closing tab interchanged for easier access to ammunition for the cavalryman. The pouch holds 24 rounds of .45/70 ammunition. Also fitted with a compartment for a combination tool ( a swelled section on the right side of the box proper).
Leather overall is supple, stitching sound, with a nice interior. The top of the flap shows light crackling to the finish from use, and some general rubbing on mostly the flap edges.
The stamped oval U.S. is strong. The back side is stamped “No. 2”, and “J.H.WILLIAMSON.”
Nice example of an early Indian War accoutrement for Springfield Trapdoor carbines
