Revolutionary War Militia Rifleman’s Cartridge Box and 19 Cartridges.
Originally turned up at a Maine Estate auction, the cartridges are approximately .62 Cal. and are dipped in tallow or some other substance for waterproofing. They are all wrapped in Revolutionary War Period Newspapers. Leather flap on box is missing in action but otherwise very solid considering it’s backwoods construction. This piece should be in a museum. More pictures upon request.
Open 6 days a week!
