Z7565 Indian War 1st Allin Conversion Cartridge Box Tin
Description: Nice example of a Civil War cartridge box tin converted for use during the early Indian War Era. These converted cartridge box tins were manufactured for use with the 1st Allin Conversion muskets which were chambered for .58 rimfire cartridges. Both the .58 rimfire and Benet-primed conversion muskets were quickly replaced by the .50-70 and its accoutrements, which is why these are often found in N.O.S. condition.
The divider in the top compartment has been removed and a wooden block was inserted. The block contains eight holes that measure approximately .63” in diameter. Two of these tins would slip into a Civil War surplus .69 cartridge box which would give your average infantryman plenty of ammunition. The open compartment on the bottom would hold excess ammunition. A very nice example of an early Indian War accoutrement for the 1st Allin conversion muskets.
Measures: 4.5” x 3.75” x 1.5”
