COLT 44 CENTER FIRE CARTRIDGES
Antique Ammo Winchester Brand – Circa 1890
These Colt 44 center fire cartridges, Winchester brand, circa 1890 is an exceptional box of antique ammo that is unopened with all the yellow/orange side sealing intact and unbroken. The green top label is fine condition with only a few minor rub spots.
Interestingly, the box is labeled “Rifle Cartridges” but were manufactured for Colt Conversion revolvers. Historically, some eastern cities had banned the sale of pistol cartridges within city limits and by so marking the boxes; Winchester outsmarted the anti-gun establishment of that era. To my knowledge, I am not aware of any rifle that accepted this chambering. A really nice box of hard to find .44 Colt antique ammo, especially in this condition.
Wrapped in plastic for protection.
