North Carolina Import Variant

By late 1862 the Confederacy was importing  cut leather pieces for belts,  gun slings, cap pouches,  knapsacks etc. as well as  the hardware ,buckles, and cartridge box tins so the various Confederate arsenals could produce copies of the imported goods from S.Isaac &Campbell and other suppliers.  This pack follows the actual pattern of the Imported style but varies in certain assembly techniques and attachment systems which leads to the speculation that it could be a Confederate copy. 

The original is in the North Carolina Museum----http://collections,
