Antique Cartridges

This is an excellent OPENED Winchester antique 38-40 ammo box with a full compliment of original cartridges. It’s a very early first issue Winchester Brand box, circa 1878 – 1880, with a full complement of un-head stamped cartridges.

It is in excellent 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 one tiny rub spot, otherwise it’s almost perfect. The box is solid with no split seams and showing no repairs. About 95% of the red side wrap is still intact. The reloading label on the inside of the lid in also very good and fully readable. The cartridges are excellent.

Winchester Antique 38-40 Ammo- Red Side Wrap

This is the first Winchester box of 38-40 un-marked head stamped cartridges I have encountered.

A great display box for an early black powder Winchester 73′ or Colt SAA firearm of the same caliber.

Covered with plastic wrap for protection.
