"Chief of Ordnance, Gen. Alexander Dyer, came up with a cartridge box filling the need to carry ammo created by the Colt S.A. revolvers issued during the late 1800’s. The .45 cal. cartridges could be easily carried and accessed with this new design.  "  www.by-the-sword.com

I say 'taint no cartridge box, but a cap box.
But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.   James 1:25 (KJV)

So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.   James 2:12. (KJV)

Originally the Dyer box was designed for 45-70 cartridges.  It didn't take long for the Army to realize they work for 45 colt, 44, or any other cartridge.    The Dyer box was designed by the Army after the Civil War so technically there could not have been any marked with the "CS" stamp.   The rest of Frankenstein's rig is confederate themed so we went with a confederate box and called it "Dyer style cartridge belt box".

Too big for a cap box.   6 1/2 wide x 5 inches tall.   There is small pocket built in the front of the pouch.   It could be for caps but no need for caps when carrying metallic cartridges.
