$2,200.00 0 Bids Unsold, 14-Day Returns

Seller: alismith1195812 (1,488) 100%, Location: Huntington, New York, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 163207703171 This original .69 caliber cartridge box as you can see from the photographs is complete and in very nice condition. It has its original tins and all stitching is tight and intact. Both ear flaps are in place. Box has the circular stamp on inside flap of Felix Chillingworth (Maker) Springfield Mass. It is hard to read but you can make it out in good light. Chillingworth had a contract Sept. 8, 1862 for 5000 sets of .58 and .69 caliber accoutrements. Here is the exceedingly rare part of this rig - the white buff sling. The sling has the faded and worn ink stamp of Edgar Pray 56 Frankfort St. NYC. The top of his stamp had a spread winged eagle. Research shows that Pray only had one contract in 1843 for 1000 white buff leather accoutrements. Pray was in business at this address from 1840-45. So this was made prior to the Mexican War. When the sling was married to the box is an unknown factor but they have been together for a long long time. This rig has always been a prized piece of my collection. It has been displayed many times with my Mexican War flintlock and percussion rifles. Almost forgot mention that the eagle breast plate is also original. It was on the sling when I purchased the rig many years ago. See photos for best idea of items and condition. Questions welcomed. I ship Priority Mail within 24 hours of receipt of payment. Payment is due within 2 days of the close of the auction. Thank you for viewing my listing. Please see my other items as well. Condition: Used, Condition: excellent condition, Country/Region of Manufacture: United States
