I have been looking for pictures for period wooden crate/box/case that may have been used to ship,store or protect 1874 sharps rifles in the day. I would like to build one. So far my search has been unsuccessful. Can any one help. Thank you.

A Civil War cartridge box for .58 1863 ammo recently sold at auction for $1813.50 after the buyer's premium.
I wonder how much an 1874 Sharps box would cost? :rolleyes:
