Very Rare Sealed! Winchester 56-50 Spencer RF Ammo Square Box 25 Round

  • Price: $1,495.00
  • Maker: Winchester
  • Model: Ammo
  • Caliber: .56-50

  • Description: This is a very rarely seen full and sealed, 25 original rounds, box of Winchester .56-50 Spencer rim fire ammunition. The one piece square box interestingly has the incorrect Stetson's Patent date of Oct. 24, 1874 often seen on pre-1900's labels but also bears the File Code of 76 and Date Code of 4-8 making this the latest Oct. 24 box label (see Giles & Shuey p20). It remains in near excellent sealed condition with intact primary and side labels having excellent graphics with a beautiful wood cut of the cartridge. The buff box shows some very minor rub wear and slight age soiling with edge wear along several sides. A superb box for the ammunition collector and to display with your Spencer rifle.
