Thread: Wooden US Cartridge Black Shell box

  1. #1

    Wooden US Cartridge Black Shell box

    We had our city wide garage sale this weekend, went with the wife looking for treasures.
    Found some good vintage tools but the best find was 2 nice lead dippers, a # 4 and other is a nice long pouring spout dipper in an old box that had about 10Lb of lead in it. Didnít look at the box till end of day, WOW nice old pre 1926 US Cartridge brass 410 box in great condition. Just thought I would share a great find that was at one of the baby clothes garages sales today. I pretty sure itís pre 1926 because of address, any other information would be appreciated.

    Great find! Happens once in a while but not often, at least for me. Good for you.
