This is a very nice OPENED (on three sides) antique 38-40 ammo box with a full compliment of original cartridges. It’s a first issue, central fire, Winchester Brand box, circa 1885.

It is in very good overall condition, showing the early “old time” graphics and a picture of a cartridge on the end of the box. The top green label shows a few rubs and edge wear. However, it is fully readable. The box is solid with a few seam splits to the bottom. All of the red side wrap is still intact. Although, a little faded from time. Also, the reloading label on the inside of the lid is very good and fully readable. The cartridges are un-touched and in very good condition.
