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)

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.'

...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...

38 S&W Special
200 Grain

Remington. Early "Dogbone" box, ca earl-1930ss, in the very scarce 200 grain so-called "Police Bullet" loading. While the primary label has good color and only a minor scratch, both flaps have been re-attached w/ transparent tape; still, this box remains very displayable. Believed to be the second of only 2 varieties of the first style box in this load, this one contains 16 original nickel-cased rds.  [If you want a nicer one, pls go to "50-rd" link at top of this pg] $50
38-44 S&W Special

Remington. Here is a very scarce box of the "Metal Point Bullet" loading, much the rarer of the 2 types offered (plain lead being the other) in this short-lived 1930s cartridge not found in any other box style or even by any other maker. Unfortunately, the box is rough and missing both flaps. Fortunately, there are 38 of these hard-to-find original cartridges remaining, all with the rare headstamp: "Rem-UMC 38-44 S&W Spl".

38-56

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.  Contains 12 orig ctdgs, properly headstamped, which still appear quite capable of fulfilling the Co's promise. $50
38-56

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 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

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.
