- Description: This is a seldom seen full box of Winchester .38 WCF (.38-40) Blank Loads for the Winchester Model 1873 rifle. While not pictured in Giles and Shuey's One Hundred Years of Winchester book they refer to similar labels on Shot boxes having a R4 rating. The undated green lid label rates very fine showing a small flake at the bottom left corner, some scattered light staining and handling marks with otherwise mostly crisp lettering. The natural-colored side labels are mostly intact with nice lettering, the right lid end flap is missing and the box shows the expected overall light edge wear and minor scuffs. The bottom shows an intact "License to the trade" label with "VOID" over-stamp. The cartridges rate very good plus to very fine with light tarnishing along the case heads and some tiny spots of minor verdigris. A great box for the Winchester 1873 collector.
