Maker: USMC Model: McKeever Box

A scarce USMC McKeever cartridge box designed to take 4 clips of 6 mm Lee Navy cartridges. This box is embossed USMC on the front. These boxes are noted on page 76 of the "Winchester Lee Rifle" by Eugene Myszkwski and are also shown in the 1920-early 30's Bannerman catalogs. A sound and very scarce USMC item for the Marine Corps or the Lee Navy collector. This box is complete with the exception of the hinge cover leather which has broken away from the brass hinge pin. This USMC model box is also shown on page 94 of "Indian War Cartridge Pouches, Boxes and Carbine Boots" by Stephen Dorsey. The author describes these McKeever boxes as very scarce and desirable that are rarely seen. The right side of the inner box end shows Rock Island Arsenal inspector marked E.H.S.
