Here is a great looking M1864 .58cal Cartridge box by Emanuel Metzger of Philadelphia which does bear his mark on the inner flap. It also has the US Ordnance Inspector’s mark of Hartzell. The leather is in overall good condition. The leather is still pliable no crazing noted some wear noted on the around the embossed ‘US’ on the front outer flap. The outer flap latch is present and still holds secure against the brass finial. Both tins are present. The belt loops and iron roller buckles for the shoulder strap are also present and intact. Its just a nice box overall.
