UNION METALLIC CARTRIDGE COMPANY YELLOW “CREEDMORE” LABEL BOX OF .40 -3 ¼ INCH CALIBER CARTRIDGES FOR THE REMINGTON RIFLE – 5 ROUND BOX IN EXCELLENT CONDITION:  Also known as the .40-90 Sharps Straight as introduced in 1885, this is a very collectable .40-3 ¼  caliber cartridge box bears what some refer to as the “Creedmore” Union Metallic Cartridge company yellow label.   The label features a highlighted banner call out indicating this loading is specifically for the Remington Rolling Block Rifles popular with the target shooters and sportsmen of the late 1800’s.   

The box is in excellent condition with a full, legible cover label as can be seen in the photographs below.  The box is full form and like the label, is in excellent condition showing little evidence of the normal wear and tear to which these early boxes were subjected.  The seams of both the lid and the body are intact and the box holds its full form.   

The box contains one original cartridge – a full, complete load, holding the classic 370 grain paper patched bullet and having the proper UMC Solid Head “SH” headstamp.  

This is a very nice specimen of a five round box with the fairly scarce yellow label with the Remington reference.  One that does not appear on the collector market very often, this box will make a nice addition to display with your rifle.  (0327)  $275
