WINCHESTER REPEATING ARMS CO "CARTRIDGE PICTURE” LABEL - .45-90 CARTRIDGES FOR THE MODEL 1886 RIFLE - FULL BOX – GREEN LABEL:  This full, complete box bears the very collectable “Cartridge Picture” green label, which features an image of the cartridge with the “.45 – 90 – 300 WINCHESTER MODEL 1886” legend superimposed on the cartridge.    

First introduced in the 1886 catalog, this new cartridge was developed for the Model 1886 Winchester Rifle, was offered in the Model 1885 Winchester Single Shot Rifle, and Marlin later chambered their Model 1895 Rifle for this caliber as well. 

The early production two piece square cornered box is complete and full form.  The top and front labels are complete, the printing is intact, and the edges of the labels have only some minor shelf wear.  The end panel label is intact and fully legible, as is the reloading instruction label on the lower section of the box.  The box is very solid with no open seams and the box retains its shape with sharp edges.   

The box contains 20 original Winchester headstamped .45-90 cartridges, all have the proper headstamp, and all are loaded with the correct flat tipped, lead conical bullets.    

This is a relatively scarce offering of a very desirable Winchester cartridge and this box will display nicely with your 1886 rifle.  (0123)  $1500
