U.S. Cartridge Co. The famous N.R.A. issue, ca. 1919-20, Dunn: US-51 LR-5. SEALED. Has folded shot shell ad inside (I know this because open boxes from this same lot all have it (see ".22 Rimfire " pg). This is the loading referred to by the highly regarded gun writer from the 1930s, Phil Sharpe, in his famous book The Rifle in America:
"Despite the claims of ammunition makers, this author recalls one old now obsolete .22 Long Rifle, the old "U.S. NRA" made by the United States Cartridge Co at Lowell, Mass. This N.R.A. cartridge was a Lesmok powder loading, packaged in a blue box with red letters and so far outshone all other match cartridges of the early 1920's that it was practically exclusively used in the major matches." (Philip B. Sharpe, The Rifle in America. Wm Morrow & Co, 1938. Pg 608)

44 Colt Packet
(REPRO)

Paul R. Murphy, Boston Mass. This packet of 6 reproduction .44 Colt "Combustible Envelope Cartridges", while not a risk to being passed off as a genuine, "period" packet, it is minty and quite possibly (and feels like) it contains repro cartridges (unlike the phony packets going around). Anybody know anything about these, when they were made or who Paul Murphy was? Neat item at any rate!

$45

44-40  
EMPTY, but...
Winchester. Thought to be the very FIRST Smokeless box (ca 1896-97) in this iconic caliber by Winchester (See Giles & Shuey, pg 71), this is also one of the rarest & most sought after of all Winchester boxes and is seldom found in displays or collections. Smokeless "Sunburst" label on side.  Box is msg right lid end and outer pc of rt bottom end but no box interior visible. Also msg small pc from bottom corner (3/16 x 1/2"). FAR scarcer than the Win M73 "picture box".  Rare box, minimum condition, cheap price.

$150

45-70 Winchester. Two-pc Smkls box, Ca 1910. Full of tin-jacket Soft Points. Primers, except 2, are "w" marked and all are "WRACo" headstamped on "large-ring" type head. Ctdgs show staining but are all original, factory loads. These early SP boxes are much scarcer than the Blk Pwdr, lead b't ctdgs which were intended more for the military surplus Springfield rifles than for the "new, modern" (post-1895) lever guns of the period.

$65
sold

45-85 Marlin Connecticut Ctdg Co. In business from 1962 till about 1975, this company manufactured a line of cartridges advertised as "Cartridges Out of the Past -- Being Produced Again and Sold Here -- Fire your 'Old Favorite' Again".  This box is of the earlier style, ca 1962-3.  Contains all 20 orig smkls, JSP ctdgs,  headstamped 45-85, & which still appear quite capable of fulfilling the Co's promise.

$85

50-70 Frankford Arsenal. String-pull box dated April, 1873. Except for the right end which has been restored (see pic), this box is totally orig and clean w/ no splits or repairs to the left end or anywhere else. A very displayable example with pull-string still in place. $725
