$69.95, ppd
219 Zipper

Remington Kleanbore, 56 gr. Clean ammo, tight box & flaps. $85
22 Savage High Power Remington-UMC "Split-Logo" box, the earliest in this caliber, ca 1911-12, with the rds still bearing the "UMC" (pre-"Rem-UMC") headstamp which also can be seen on the ctdg pic on the box front-lid. Of further interest is an interior cartridge neck holder in which the individual ctdgs rest, keeping the sharp, pointed bullets from ripping out the box bottom. A great idea that, had it caught on, would've saved for us collectors a lot of great 2-pc boxes containing pointed bullets! This box, while it has only 4 rds remaining, is a great example of UMC's 1st in this great innovative caliber by Charles Newton! $80
sold
 
250 Savage CIL/ Dominion (Canada). 100gr SP. Clean! $30
30 Remington Remington. Partial, mixed box w/ 5 orig Rem SP and 9 Super-X (of which 4 are Silvertips) $40
30-30 "Winchester High Velocity"

Western. Bullseye box, early 1930s pre-Super-X with "W.C.Co." in upper left corner of back. Scarce loading. This is the only Winchester or Western loading in any caliber that is titled as "Winchester High Velocity" yet is not headstamped "W.H.V." (like earlier WHV-titled loadings) nor is it loaded to higher than normal velocities except as allowed by the use of a lighter (150 gr) bullet than the standard 170gr. Quite scarce and in solid condition w/ tight seams & flaps BUT it contains only 3 rds. $50
sold
303 Savage CIL/Canuck (Canada). Clean!  $50
  32 RIMFIRE, LONG OR SHORT PLEASE SEE "OBSOLETE" PAGE FOR OTHER POSSIBLE LISTINGS IN THIS CALIBER  
32 ASP
(Auto Savage Pistol)

AS ABOVE...: "Savage. Earliest 2-pc box of this style, "Savage Arms Co." printed on bottom. Later boxes, ca 1916, had the add'l word "Corp." stamped on bottom and even later, 'Savage Arms Corp.' (printed). Further, it has the 'Savage Indian' logo on both long sides and the bottom lbl is near perfect (most unusual)."

...EXCEPT: The rt end label is about 80-85% and the left end is only 25-30% (pix on reqest). Also, while the 43 ctdgs are nice & original, well, you see the problem...

$235

32 Long RF

Winchester. Two-pc, full-cover pre-war box, some label smudging but all rds orig. CHEAP!

$125

33 Winchester 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 later style, ca 1964-75.  Full of orig ctdgs, properly headstamped, which still appear quite capable of fulfilling the Co's promise (though many w/ split necks not reloadable). $65
33 Winchester Winchester. "1932" box. Flaps loose but there; ctdgs are later "WRA" headstamps (rather than "WRACo"). "Label pull" on back side (where price lbl was removed). Displayable pre-war box w/ post-war ammo. Imagine the possibilities... $80
33 Winchester Winchester, "1946 Style". Box is full of clean ammo but 16 rds are Rem-UMC and 4 are WRA headstamped $85
348 Win Winchester. Ca early/mid-1960s, the last of the "pure Winchester" boxes before they combined marketing with Western and everything became "Winchester-Western". Old price in ink, (weak) upper right, otherwise great, bright color and solid! And priced around current MSRP "shooter" level! $87.50
35 S&W Remington-UMC. Two-pc box, ca 1916-20, in "Metal Point Bullet" (Full Patch, lead-bearing) loading. Ctdgs are surprisingly clean. $95

Winchester. Two-pc Smkls box, ca 1919. Box is of the early "taped construction" type (see Giles & Shuey, pp 14-15) and shows some edge-end separations pasted back, a common occurrence w/ these boxes. Also 3 ctdgs, though properly (& identically) headstamped, are later additions. All are clean. A cheap box!

44 Bull Dog

UMC. Very scarce box & caliber. Unfortunately, label shows dark areas and box contains but 9 original rds. $50
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

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
