Here's a very cool Leather Sight/Quadrant Box for the WWI era 75mm Cannon
This heavy duty gem measures 13" tall x 10.5" wide x 3" thick
. It is made of russet leather (now suitable red/brown with age and use). There is a heavy brass/bronze spring-loaded bracket at the bottom (it pulls down) and a leather closure strap...
The interior is made with thin russet leather trimmed wood retention blocks. The cut-out fits the Gunners Quadrant. The right side supports retain a Sight Mount. As noted in follow-on posts below, this was for the U.S. 75mm cannon.
Overall condition is VG+ with some storage/age abrasions. Since this photo was taken I have meticulously removed the verdigris from the brass parts
). Leather is fine -- no rot. Some minor stitching loose. Not "mint" but very solid.Price is $150 plus postage from SE AZ
