CIVIL WAR ERA   D. C. SAGE & Co.  .36  CALIBER SKIN CARTRIDGE PACKET FOR THE COLT’S NAVY PISTOL REVOLVER – COMPLETE LABEL – EXCELLENT SEALED SPECIMEN:  This is an original Civil War era packet of .36 caliber skin cartridges manufactured by the D.C. Sage & Co. ammunition company of Middletown, Connecticut.  While the label specifically states “FOR COLT’S NAVY PISTOL”, this six round packet is of the type issued with any of the .36 caliber revolvers of that period.    

This packet is in “like new” condition, showing no signs of wear or aging, and with the wrapper completely intact.  The pull string is still present and still anchored under the wrapper.  This is truly a special example.   

Civil War era cartridge packets are becoming more and more difficult to find in any condition and finding one in this condition is particularly notable.   In spite of the quantities of these packets that were produced, surviving specimens are becoming harder and harder to find, and this is would be an excellent packet to add to a cased set with your Colt Navy Revolver or any of the percussion .36 caliber pistols.  SOLD
