Reference Number Z3065

 

Description: Here is a full box of 10 .50 Gallager Carbine cartridges and a packet of 12 percussion caps produced during the American Civil War . This packet was produced by B.C. English of Springfield, Mass. who operated from 1863-1865. This particular box is scarce due to the fact that Gallager is misspelled "Gallagher." Dean Thomas notes that this particular box style is thought to have been from the initial order placed by Schuyler, Hartley, and Graham of New York. You will see a lot of these boxes with the patent date but very few of this particular style exist today.
