E. REMINGTON PACKET OF 10 .44 CALIBER, SWAGED
MATCH RIFLE BULLETS – FULL UNOPENED BOX:
Produced by E. Remington & Sons arms company, this
scarce and very collectible packet of .44 caliber
Swaged Bullets bears the desirable 1870’s Remington
label with entwined “ERS” medallion.
Produced in the mid to late 1870’s, these bullet packets
would have been available to the shooters at such
matches as Creedmoor, and it is possible that these
packets were carried in the inventory of the dealers and
hide buyers supplying the commercial buffalo hunters on
the Western Frontier.
This packet is unopened and it has survived in very nice
condition with a legible cover label showing only very
minor surface wear. The box retains its full form, with
all of the corners and edges intact.
This is a very nice specimen of a fairly scarce box of
.44 caliber match rifle bullets manufactured by
Remington, and one that does not appear on the collector
market very often. This packet will make a nice
addition to display with your .44 caliber single shot
rifle. (0246) $550
