    Picked up a few 1884 style re-repos too (those are green not blue!)
    Side label, rifle is on wrong side....isn't it?!

    I know the collectors frown on repros but since I can not afford the originals, I will enjoy using my repros....and my repro rifle!

    I did make one First Label (Boxes were not sealed until mid 1870's from what I understand)

    Nice. Very interesting. Did you actually produce the labels? I'll bet that there is a limited market for these if you want to make them commercially. Companies like Midway and Dixie would probably be happy to sell them.
