War of 1812 Militia Complete Cartridge Box, Belt and Pick/Brush
War of 1812 Militia Complete Cartridge Box, Belt and Pick/Brush. It is very rare to find a cartridge box with the original belt and pick and brush. lBox Measures 8x2.5x3 inches and is of a style popular in the first quarter of the 19th c. but could be late 18th c. Belt masures 37 in. and is complte with stitching loss on the belt keeper. The iron buckle in intact adn this belt would not have had a brass plate on it. Their is an owens name written on the back of the belt, "F. ohenes" perhaps and some more writing. I am in the process of using difference lights and magnification to identify. Further reserach is needed.
