FRANKFORD ARSENAL 44 "MARTIN" PRIMED AMMUNITION PACKET FOR THE COLT & REMINGTON CONVERSION REVOLVERS – DATED JUNE 1871 – AN EXCELLENT UNOPENED EARLY PACKET:  Manufactured at the Frankford Arsenal in June of 1871, this 12 round box of .44 caliber "Martin Primed" ammunition was produced for the Colt Richards Conversion revolvers and the Remington Conversion revolvers in use by the army between 1871 and 1873.  As these converted pistols were in use for a relatively brief period, these early Indian War packets are fairly rare and are not regularly available on the collector’s market.    

This packet is in excellent condition, still sealed and with the pull string still intact.  The label is complete and fully legible, the edges are sharp, all of the seams are intact, and the packet is very solid.   The packet is not fragile, is very tight, retains the proper form and shape, and the paper wrapper is in excellent condition.  

This is a rare opportunity to acquire one of these early packets in this condition.  Whether you own a Colt or Remington conversion revolver at this time or not, this .44 Caliber pistol cartridge packet from the early Indian Wars period is a key Frankford Arsenal specimen to add to your collection, and certainly one that you’ll never regret owning.  Finding another in this condition will be a tall order if you pick up a Richards or Remington conversion in the future, so give this one some serious thought before you let it slip away.  (0507)  $975
