EXTREMELY RARE ORIGINAL CIVIL WAR “GREEN LABEL” HENRY RIFLE CARTRIDGE BOX COMPLETE WITH 50 ORIGINAL CARTRIDGES.

SN NSN. This is a nice example of the rarely seen 1862-1863 vintage “Green Labeled” 50 cartridge box. These are rarely found and an identical box is shown on pg 30 of Giles & Shuey One Hundred Years of Winchester Cartridge Boxes. This is a fine orig box containing 50 orig cartridges that would display well with the much easier to find Civil War era Henry rifle itself. CONDITION: Box is very good overall with fading to green color of label with staining. There is a newer ink inscription on the left short side of box describing cartridges. 50818-2 JS (8,000-12,000) – Lot 4021
