Antique Early 1900s Leather Military Ammo Case, Curved Pouch
For sale here is an antique, 19th century, sturdy leather military ammunition case with brass hardware. It has a long strap that can either be wrapped all the way around the case (as pictured) or it can be used as a shoulder strap. The elderly man I purchased this from said he believed it to be an ammo case for machine gun clips, but I’m not sure if it is because I couldn’t find info about it online other than one listing of the same bag that stated it as from the 19th century (I think it’s probably early 1900s). It seems like it could be for machine gun ammo, though, because of its slightly curved shape. It could possibly even be a saddle bag for ammo. There are no markings or manufacturer noted that I see anywhere. It measures about 12″ tall by about 6″ wide by about 4.5″ thick. It has been very well used with lots of dirt, wear, nicks and patina that tell of its storied journey through life thus far. I didn’t clean it at all. Would definitely be a cool case to use as home decor or to use for a creative storage solution!
