It looks like a pistol cartridge box from the 1850s-60s era. If it is, it would have held pre-made paper cartridges for a revolver that would be rammed into the chambers of the cylinder whole to speed up reloading.

Can you see any marks at all anywhere on the front of the flap, or anywhere on it? This looks very similar to the Civil War pistol cartridge pouch but is a little larger than those made by Joseph Davy.
