    Theatrical Blanks

    The one on the left is a Winchester "special tool" blank. The others are theatrical blanks with either full or 1/2 charge. The 5-in-1 is very common in the early film business. The other two are .45-70 and .50-70 Gov't.

    Hmmm.... use to know what the 5 were!
    .38-40, .44-40, 45 Colt...... failing memory

    I picked up the two black ones after a show at Old Tucson. Watched the guy reload his revolver, and drop the fired blanks. After the crowd cleared, I went over and picked the up. Don't remember where I picked up the 45 acp one.
