Caliber Description   $

$40

9 m/m Long
Shot Lesmok
Winchester. This is the seldom encountered Lesmok loading. Though found in this "Smokeless" red-labeled box, these very scarce GREEN Lesmok shells, to the author's knowledge, have been found in no other labeling: there are NO Lesmok labeled boxes. (see Giles & Shuey, pg 241). This rare box has 14 original cartridges (which, for years, I've seen priced in the $10-15 range). For the advanced collector of the several interesting varieties of this great little cartridge! $150

9 m/m Long

Winchester. Red, paper-tubed "mini" shot shells for the Win Mod 36. Shells are clean & native to the box. Bright & solid, NICE! $215
 
20 Ga Winchester. As below in 20 Ga., this is the Leader "Quail" box. Ca 1935, with its great graphics, this colorful box is one of the most sought-after & desirable of all Winchester shot shell boxes, and especially so in 20 gauge! We have been fortunate enough to have run into an original crate still containing a small number of these beautiful boxes. These are truly "case fresh"!!

$695

18 Ga U.M.C.Co. This an example of the rare 1-7/8" 18 gauge shot shell by UMC. Very few examples of this rare cartridge are known to exist. There are 2 varieties: the earliest shows "No. 18" on the headstamp but the headstamp bunter broke and was replaced by a "No. 20" bunter creating a 2nd (even rarer) variety as shown in the photo here. The top wad, however, was the same on all such shells and clearly shows "18 Infallible 3/4 C 7 1/2 U.M.C." The pink paper tubes were also consistent with both varieties. Nice clean example & an unusual opportunity! [From my personal collection].

12 Ga   Montgomery Ward. The famous "Red Head" graphics, among the most attractive labelings in the field of shot shell box collecting. Not generally considered rare, but seldom seen in this pristine condition. And it's SEALED!
[Photo'd in shrink-wrap; pls ignore seam]

12 Ga Peters. This is the much sought-after "Halloween" box of trap loads by Peters, one of the most popular of all shotshell graphics. Two-pc box, empty but solid w/ correct bottom. The creases seen in the pix are just that: creases, not tears. Also, there are no seams splits as are often found in these two-piece shot shell boxes. This is as cheap as you're likely to find a "no excuses" Halloween box!

12 Ga Winchester. As above in 20 Ga., this is the Leader "Quail" box. Ca 1935, with its great graphics, this colorful box is one of the most sought-after & desirable of all Winchester Shot Shell boxes. We have been fortunate enough to have run into an original crate still containing a small number of these beautiful boxes. For clarification, the mark running from the thumb-cut down into the "D" of "LEADER" is a surface scratch, not a tear. And all the boxes found exhibited this mark (including a box the orig owner kept). Other boxes by Winchester are said to have been found with this mark as well so they unquestionably left the factory this way. A great find!

No shell protrusions, all shells orig red paper & native to the box. Pix show front as well as top & bottom (pls ignore shrink-wrap seam on bottom) $27.50
