Y1266 Empty Packet for Six .44 Colt Army Revolver Cartridges Manufactured by the Watervliet Arsenal 1864
Description: Here is a scarce packet that is rarely encountered on the market. This is a pasteboard box that originally contained six cartridges with seven percussion caps. This packet was opened on the sides and the two side flaps have been glued. The label reads, "SIX CARTRIDGES / FOR / COLT'S ARMY REVOLVER, / CAL. 44. / WITH 7 PERCUSSION CAPS. / WATERVLIET ARSENAL. / 1864." These pasteboard packets are extremely scarce due to the materials used to produce the packet.
