100 Years of Winchester Cartridge Boxes, 1856-1956
The 1st and ONLY
definitive work on cartridge boxes, covering all the calibers for which
Winchester cataloged their rifles, from the Volcanic to the Model 88.
Thoroughly researched, this 312 page book contains
over 1,400 full color photographs as well as price and rarity
guides in a high quality, hard-cover book with dust-jacket!
Will be happy to sign your copy on request.
|2.7 m/m Kolibri||This little guy is the smallest center-fire cartridge ever made, ca 1913. Primer has been struck, but a nice clean example of a rare cartridge. Shown here between a dime and a .22 Short.||SOLD|
|6 m/m Lee
|Winchester. Five "WRACo 6 m/m U.S.N." headstamped Full Metal Jkt rds in orig clip. "Pat. Oct 8 95" stamped on clip base as it should be. Getting quite rare. Have seen the clips alone, w/o ctdgs, go for over $150 on more than one occasion. (Photo'd in shrink-wrap; pls ignore label removal mark)||
|DWM (Deutsche Waffen und Munitionsfabriken; Karlsruhe, Germany). This is an original packet of 3 clips holding 15 rds of 7mm Spanish Mauser. It is still sealed with a red DWM sticker (upper pic, left side) on the front which holds in place a pull-ribbon with which to open the packet. The back of the lid is held in place by a wood-grained paper sealing tape of the same pattern as the box but slightly lighter in color (upper pic, right side). Rare military item in great condition!||$85|
||Kynoch, 10-rd boxes of 140 gr Jktd Hol Pt and 160 gr Jktd Hol Pt. Have 2 each.||
|7.65 Roth-Sauer||Winchester. RARE caliber! I have seen exactly 3 boxes of this, EVER! Side label 65-70%. Though first loaded by Win in 1908, the primary (top) label graphics pre-date that by about 2 years. 23 original ctdgs remain.||
|9 m/m RF Ball||Remington-UMC, ca 1919. This is the hard-to-find "Ball" black powder loading for the Win Model 36 (as well as a number of foreign guns). These 4-language boxes were obviously meant for export as well as for domestic consumption. The box construction is unusual in that the inner tray slides out from the ends. This one, however, is SEALED & MINTY and a lot cheaper than a Winchester box!||$185|
|9 m/m RF Ball||Winchester. Early SEALED blk pwdr box, ca 1920. This is the much scarcer & more desirable "Domestic" box as opposed to the more commonly found "Export" (4-language) box. Note the call-out for the Winchester Model 36 beneath the cartridge pic. (Also, see Giles & Shuey, pg 242). This box has gone at auction for over $500!||
|38 Special||Federal. Military issue and packaging, 1958 dated headstamp, Full Metal Jacket.||$25|
|38 Long Colt||
Remington-UMC. Ca 1916-19.
Undoubtedly WW1 military issue--headstamped "REM-UMC 18".
Full & correct, side-lbl 90+%.
|43 Spanish||Remington-UMC, Berdan-primed Blk Pwdr ctdgs ca late-'Teens. Two boxes, both in lousy condition, but containing all 40 of their original ctdgs. Cheap!||
$100, shipped, for BOTH!
|Western. Korean War military packaging, headstamped "WCC 53". Minty!||$40|
|450/400||Westley Richards, Birmingham, England. Big double rifle stuff, these are among the calibers used by the Brits in Africa and India 100 years ago. Two boxes, one full and the other with 2 ctdgs + 3 fired empties, 7 clean, original rounds.||$85|
"Remington's Army Pistol,
|Frankford Arsenal. So-called "Bannerman" box w/ date cut out. Bannerman's, a NY Military Surplus dealer from just after the Civil War until ca 1950, hired ladies to cut dates out of these 1870s (prob 1872-dated) boxes so customers, buying the packets years--even decades--later, wouldn't know how old the ammo was. This box has had its string pulled and, absent the shrink-wrap, the ammo can be seen inside if you choose to display it that way. A neat bit of history!||$175|
