Antique Ammo 38-40 Shot Cartridges

Winchester Brand

Circa 1895 – 1910

Rare Find – Antique Shot Cartridges

To find an un-opened factory sealed box of these early shot cartridges is a rare find.  Although, shot cartridges for rifles are not rare, they are relatively uncommon. This Winchester brand box of antique ammo 38-40 shot cartridges for sale is UN-OPENED.  In addition, the box is in excellent overall condition.  The cartridge box is marked “expressly made for Winchester Model 1873 and other .38 caliber rifles.”  To clarify, this is a black powder box with brass cartridges loaded with no. 8 shot.

Although, the box is near PERFECT, there is one small rub spot on the top label in the lower right hand corner.  Also, the bottom of the box shows the guarantee label pasted over an earlier label???
