SINGLE COLLECTORS CARTRIDGES - .32 WCF THROUGH .50-115 BULLARD - INCLUDING SEVERAL .40, .44 &  .45 CALIBER SHARPS CARTRIDGES:  I recently acquired this old collection of original single cartridges, the majority of which were produced in the 19th Century.  Many scarce and quite rare loadings are represented in this group and are those same cartridges avidly sought by collectors today to display with their firearms, hence becoming relatively hard to find on the market today. 

I have included a photograph of a sampling of these cartridges, however this photo does not include all of the cartridges in this listing.  I will provide photographs of individual cartridges for serious purchasers only, but please be reasonable.  I do not have the time to provide a photo of each and every cartridge only for browsing purposes, so please do not ask. 

Each cartridge is individually described below including  the caliber, any notable characteristics, manufacturer's headstamp (hs) and the general date or type of firearms for which these cartridges were commonly used.  All of the cartridges are in very good to excellent condition, with clear headstamps (on those so headstamped) and from all appearances the original loading and bullet (except where noted). 

In most cases, there is only one example, but for those cartridges for which I have multiple pieces, that quantity is listed below as well.  When these are sold, I have no plans to replace them at this time.  This is a one time offering for this group. 

The prices indicated are per single cartridge.  However, if you purchase 10 or more cartridges in the same, one shipment order, I will discount the purchase price by 10%.  If you purchase 20 or more cartridges in the same, one shipment order, I will discount the purchase price by 20%.  Please do not request discounts for purchases of less than 10 pieces.  NOTE: The .32 Rimfire Blanks listed below as Lot #3 are not included in this quantity discount offer.
