S

CIL-Dominion. Pictured in the Canadian section of The .22 Box Identification Guide" as
CIL-2 S-2, this box has "Dry Lubricated Bullets" stamped (very lightly) on the front edge of the lid of this early 2-pc box. Evidently the predecessor to CIL-2 S-3, which is a 1-pc box with the Dry Lube call-out printed in the upper right corner in place of "Smokeless/Greaseless", this box would be a very short-lived 1932 transitional labeling. Not noted in either the I.D. Guide or Don Blyth's The .22 Rimfires of Canada, this box is rare in any condition, but exceptionally so as pristine as seen here!
$150

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

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!

Long Winchester. Dunn: WRA-3 L-1, Blk pwdr 1890s box. Sealed on back edge of red side-seal tho missing a bit of front edge label due to rough opening by some klutz who never dreamed we'd be collecting his 22 box 125 years later! $135

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
