Super sweet pattern 1864, New York militia cartridge box. I really love these SNY pattern boxes but they are getting hard to find. The leather on this one is in great shape. There is some crazing to the surface but the leather remains very pliable. The exterior flap retains the original and quite beautiful SNY plate and both tin boxes are present also. One of the roller buckles has become detached but it is included tucked into one of the tins. All the stitching is solid on this one too. The inside flap is marked with the manufacturer’s stamp of “Baker & McKenney N-Y”. There is also the letter “W” stamped below the bottom edge of the inner flap from the inspector. The plate is in very good condition, has both attachment hooks, and is attached by a thin strip of leather which is likely a replacement. The letters “SNY” on the plate are the “broad letter” style, an example of which can be found as plate 548 on page 337 of O’Donnell and Campbell’s “American Military Belt Plates”, 2nd edition. About as nice as you’re going to find!
