And here is what a characteristic Thirty Years War period saddle holster looked like, this fine sample preserved in virtually 'untouched' condition and retaining both its top cover lid and side bag, a wooden container (damaged) inserted, drilled for four paper cartridges.
On the bottom of that cartridge container a piece of paper was found printed with the date 1621, still containing some black powder.
