Product Description

A rare original US marked 1874 Pattern McKeever Cartridge Pouch Type 5, in good used condition.

The 1874 Pattern Mckeever went through 6 types, with variations in construction, size and calibre size, with the Type 5 only being made for some 6 months, before being superseded by the Type 6. This makes it the rarest of the variants. It is distinct in that it is similar in size as the larger Type 3 and Type 4, but with the inside bellows and hand sewn cartridge loops made of drab coloured duck material. However, it still has the corner clamps, brass stud and escutcheon on the retaining strap, that were removed by the Ordnance Board for economy reasons in the Type 6. The black leather front has the US embossed mark.

There are 4 Holes around the US emblem, indicating a brass unit emblem was once attached over the embossed US mark. Would have held 20 rounds as well as a small screwdriver. It is a nice early Indian war period cartridge box for .45-70 brass cased rifle shells. The case retaining strap has been repaired but is still intact.

Size: 18 x 11.5 x 4 cm (7 1/8 x 4 ½ x 1 ½ inches)
Weight: 261 g
