Winchester 44 Long Rimfire Ammo
Circa Late 1870’s
A very rare and hard to find box of Winchester 44 Long Rimfire ammo cartridges. The .44 Long RF was a popular rifle cartridge in the 1860’s and 70’s. But, this rifle cartridge faded from use after the introduction of the 44-40 Central Fire. It also chambered into the Colt SAA in .44 Rim Fire caliber that was manufactured in 1877 & 1878. The two piece box of this antique ammo is OPENED and only in fair condition.
The bottom portion of the box is in good condition. Although, the top only fair. First of all, the top label shows about 20% loss of the green label. In addition, the back side flap is missing, with separation at the seams. It is literally being held together by the plastic wrap. Fortunately, the small Winchester guarantee label on the bottom is in good condition. The front side flap tape is marked “44 Long RF”. Lastly, all the original cartridges are present and in good un-cleaned condition and show the “H” headstamping.
An early collector box of antique ammo that is hard to find in any condition. This box displays great with a .44 Colt SAA Rimfire Revolver.
Covered with plastic wrap for protection.
