Another find from a corner cleanout, we have owned this wonderful old dovetailed Winchester Repeating Arms Co. ammo box for years using it at antique shows to hold for sale paper ephemera. (It served as a TV stand on a bedroom dresser for the last 15 years or so.) Any way this attractive old ammo box is constructed of 9/19 inch thick pine, dovetailed at the corners and measuring 11 Ύ x 9 3/8 x 6 5/8 inches high. The eye appealing old ammunition box shows good natural age color with good evidence of originality and use while remining in eye pleasing, solid condition. Marked on both sides; Small Arms Ammunition / Metallic Cartridges / Winchester Repeating Arms Co. / New Haven, Conn. U. S. A. and on both ends; Winchester / 5,000 / .32 Short Rim. / Blank all in that period impressed print that is pressed into the wood. A classic round first introduced in 1861 for use in the popular new Smith & Wesson Number 2 revolver that was so widely used as a private purchase side arm in the Civil War, the .32 Short, Rim Fire remained popular as a revolver and light rifle cartridge for years. Usually repurposed till they fell apart and ended up as kindling, the survival of these heavy old ammunition boxes was quite limited making them a popular but difficult to obtain favorite among antique and obsolete ammunition collectors. An attractive display item. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
