22 WRF
Hol Pts

U.S. CARTRIDGE CO. Very scarce (tho partial box of 46) Hollow Points w/ NY address, among the last produced by this great, early ammunition manufacturer which lapsed into obscurity in 1936-7. Flaps have been reconstructed but the rarity of this box makes it a worthwhile collectible. Dunn: US-10B WRF-1 $95
sold
 
22 Long

Winchester. Early 1920s Lesmok loading w/37 orig rds. (Dunn: WRA-10 L-5). Longs are not easy to find! Cheap! $25
sold
30 Remington Auto


 

Remington. Rough box, nice rds. $60
30 Remington Auto [End flap]
 
Remington. Nice box & ctdgs but partial box of 14. $45
30 Remington Auto
 
Western Super-X. Scarce 1959-61 style box in the desirable Silvertip loading. Rough box but clean rds. $65
30-30


 

Dominion. The scarce & unusual "flat box" with the desirable "Bent-D" logo. Msg 1 edge of lid and part of 1 long side. Has 14 orig rds remaining. Seldom encountered! $85
30-30 FMJ
Boat Tail B'ts
Western Super-X, early box, ca 1930s, in the rare "Boat Tail, Metal Case [FMJ] Bullet" loading.
The box has a small pc msg at the thumb-cut (see pic) and contains 13 clean, original cartridges.
$45
30-'06 Western "Grizzly" box in rare 220 grain Silvertip. Flaps & seams are tight. And while all the ctdgs are 220 gr Super-X silvertips, 2 have the "Super-X 30 Sprg" headstamp while 18 have the "Super-X 30 G. 1906" headstamp (as pictured on the box). So this very scarce box comes cheap! $125
sold
32 RF LONG
SHOT
[Rare box]
Peters. This is the very scarce "Improved Semi-Smokeless " labeling which was around for only 2-3 years in the mid-1920s. Very seldom seen in ANY caliber (and a 3-figure box in any of them) this is the ONLY such .32 RF Shot box I've ever encountered. It ends up here in the Bargain Bin because of its "weak" label (tho box is solid and ctdgs are nice) and the fact that it has but 45 of its orig 50 rds. $50
sold
 
  32 RIMFIRE, LONG OR SHORT PLEASE SEE "OBSOLETE" PAGE FOR OTHER POSSIBLE LISTINGS IN THIS CALIBER  
32 Win Spl Western "Grizzly" box in the desirable .32 Winchester Special loading. Unfortunately, while full of .32 Specials, the ctdgs are mixed w/ only 6 being native to the box. (Box color & contrast is actually better than the pic shows.) Keep in mind, a full  and correct Winchester Bear box in this condition would be priced north of $300! $75
FIRST Box!

32-20
(32 WCF)
Winchester. This is the FIRST 32-20 box, thought to be ca 1882-85. In writing the caption for the earliest 32-20 box we had found prior to putting together this chapter in Giles & Shuey (pg 51), I stated that there should be a box label picturing an unheadstamped cartridge but "...such has not been seen by the authors". Well, here it is...it's 2/3 full (34 rds) but remains a highly collectible box! $595
sold
32-40

Dominion. The scarce & unusual "flat box" with the desirable "Bent-D" logo and Blk Pwdr loading. Tape-removal stains on edges. Has 13 orig rds remaining. Seldom encountered! $75
32-40

Peters. Early 2-pc "Semi-Smokeless" labeling but dating is only a guess, say 1900-1910. Has the early "football" seal on back but contains only 7 ctdgs, 2 of which have been struck. Back-side lower left corner is "soft"; still, a great, seldom-seen, displayable box by an obsolete maker! Cheap! $50
SOLD
348 Winchester Have 2 Remington bxs, 1970s-'80s, one green/white, one green/yellow. Boxes a bit rough but flaps intact;  Cartridges, however, are CLEAN & NICE!
 
$75 ea.
35 Newton

Western. Early 1930s "Bullseye" box but reloaded in the original brass w/ 250 gr JSP. Very professional loads by a well-known outfit (which I'm not at liberty to name here). $75
sold
36 Colt Navy D.C. Sage.  Similar to the above pkt, but calling out only the Colt Navy, these are the desirable "Hotchkiss Patent" (of Feb 11, 1862) "Seamless Skin Cartridges", wrapped & SEALED in a wood-block pkt of 6. HOWEVER, the pull-string is missing and upon close inspection it may be discerned that this pkt has been very skillfully re-sealed and lightly re-coated, looking, to the untrained eye, very much as it did when it left the factory. Truth be told, I have seen this "work" before on Frankford Arsenal boxes from the 1870s. All I can say here is that a trusted dealer has had a hand in it. Can't deny that it's a very displayable item however, and a lot cheaper here, I'm sure, than when it was first sold after "restoration".   Fortunately, I have X-rays from all 3 angles (they'll come w/ the pkt) and the contents are absolutely correct. It's just been very nicely re-sealed... $265
9 m/m Luger
[Error box]
Remington "Dogbone" box ca late 1920s. Note the decimal point in front of the 9, obviously an error: .9m/m would less than 1 millimeter or approximately 1/32 of an inch!! Box is full though inner tab of rt flap is missing. Neat oddity! $35
sold

38 ACP +P

1980s white bxs Win-Western, 130 gr FMJ +P loading (NOT for old 38 ACP autos like Colt 1903) $30
 
38 S&W Special

Western "Bullseye" box, pre-Olin (late-'40s). Shows a bit of shelf wear but that's all. Clean ammo! $40
38-40 Win-Western "Horse & Rider" box, full but 6 Rem-UMC rds. $60
40-70 WCF

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 earlier style, ca 1962-3.  Contains 10 orig ctdgs, properly headstamped, which still appear quite capable of fulfilling the Co's promise. $70
sold
 

41 SHORT RIMFIRE

PLEASE SEE "OBSOLETE" PAGE FOR OTHER POSSIBLE LISTINGS IN THIS CALIBER  
405 WCF

Connecticut Ctdg Co. "Unprimed Cases" 10-box but the properly headstamped cases are loaded with Jacketed Soft Points.

$22.50
sold

41 Long Colt

Winchester. Circa mid-1880s/early '90s, this Black Powder, Colt Thunderer "Picture Box" is one of the most sought-after of all Colt boxes. Top label shows some even shelf wear. Side-seal label (tho not sealed on 3 sides) is approx 80-85% but the side featuring the Rampant Colt logo is closer to 99% & is SEALED. (see pic). There are 35 "WRACo  .41 L.D.A." headstamped cartridges though not all are native to the box as some have slightly different primers.  Still, these boxes are highly collectible and displayable and this one is CHEAP! $545
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!

$50

45-85 Marlin 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 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.

$85
