BB

Winchester. "1946 style" BB Caps. [Didn't count them, but at least 3/4 full.] $27.50
CB

Western Ctdg Co. Ca. 1950, 100-pk, new from orig brick. $45
S

National Cartridge Co. NCC-1 S-3. This company was only around for less than 2 years having been founded in 1908 and then sold to Western in 1909. The ctdgs are all the correctly  headstamped "N" and all 6 sides--incl the bottom--are approx the same (maybe a bit better) condition as the top (shown). A rare, colorful & and very desirable box with some of the best graphics of ANY .22 box! $350
sold
S

Peters. Dunn: PCC-4 S-1b. SEALED, out of an original brick. What more needs be said? sold
S

Peters. The very popular "Multi-color" box, Dunn: PCC-5B S-1c. $55
sold
S H.P.

Peters. Antique Series "Flying Duck" box, as above only Hollow Point. Has very minor bottom left corner crinkle. Short Hollow Point boxes are the rarest in the entire "antique series"! $30
sold
 
S H.P.

Remington-UMC. Early split-logo box in RARE Hollow Point. REM-1 S-5. SEALED. $475
S

U.S. Cartridge Co. "SCOUT" box. One of the most collectible of all .22 boxes. This one had lost its right flap and and such has been professionally replaced. So instead of an $800-$1000 box it's less than half that price and eminently displayable to boot. A great find for someone not willing to pay the big bucks for a top-end example! $400
sold
S Winchester. Blk Pwdr, 2-pc box w/ the early (and incorrect) Stetson's Patent date of Oct 24, 1871 (later changed to correct date, Oct 31). SEALED, this is a great displayable example of a late-1880s/'90s box that won't break the bank. $145
Long Peters. Flying Duck "Antique Series", 1977. New from brick. SCARCE! $15
Long
Shot
Remington. Dogbone box in the scarce LONG Shot loading. Dunn: REM-7.1 L-3d, ca late-1920s. Orig ctdgs, no flap problems. $65
sold
Long
Silvadry

Remington. Dogbone box, early-1930s. Here is a very scarce loading: First, it's in LONG. Second, it's "SILVADRY". Third, it's  STANDARD VELOCITY.  A veritable trifecta of rarity factors! To top it off, it's a variety NOT listed in DUNN! [Rem-7.3 L-1, AA btm but #6 flap. Dunn lists only #3 flap (L-1a) and #5 flap (L-1b)]. Also, forgot to mention: NEW from (partial) brick!

LR
Peters WIMBLEDON MATCH. One of the most desirable loadings in Peters' rich legacy of collectible .22 boxes! The gold leaf is frequently found rubbed away, as was fairly easily done. Only around during the mid-1930s Depression years, this premium loading was not sold in great quantities. This is the first Wimbledon box I have offered in 22 years!  Dunn: PCC-53 LR-1 $295
