.44 CALIBER HENRY RIFLE CARTRIDGES - EXCELLENT EXAMPLES WITH DESIRABLE HEADSTAMPS:  Excellent specimens of the famous Civil War Henry Rifle, that continued in popularity after the war on the frontier, used in the Henry, Model 1866 Winchesters, and the early Colt revolvers. 

I have the following cartridges in stock, each shown below in separate photographs:

 

No. 1  Headstamped RAISED H - VERY DESIRABLE EARLY WINCHESTER CARTRIDGE:  This "raised H" headstamp is the most desirable of the early Henry Cartridges and are quite difficult to find on the loose.  A very nice example with a full form bullet.  SOLD

No. 2  Headstamped RAISED H - VERY DESIRABLE EARLY WINCHESTER CARTRIDGE:  Like those listed above, these "raised H" headstamps are the most desirable of the early Henry Cartridges.  I have a small number of these which were exposed to the elements - not dug relics, but apparently subjected to moisture or high humidity where they were stored.  These are full form with good, clean bullets, but the cartridge cases are lightly pitted.  The raised "H" on the based is still quite clear and legible.  Still good display examples at a lower cost.  (1107)  $45

 

No. 3  Headstamped IMPRINTED H - DESIRABLE WINCHESTER CARTRIDGE:  $55 each

 

No. 4  Headstamped U FOR UNION METALLIC CARTRIDGE COMPANY:  $50 each

 

No. 5  Headstamped IMPRINTED H - DESIRABLE WINCHESTER CARTRIDGE: Cartridge head bears two firing pin strikes.  Misfires or cartridges that would not fire at all were common with these early rounds. SOLD

 

No. 6  Headstamped Raised H - VERY DESIRABLE EARLY WINCHESTER CARTRIDGE:  An early relic cartridge with firing pin strikes.  SOLD

 

No. 7  No Headstamp - Firing Pin Struck Relic Cartridge: Cartridge has no headstamp and bears one firing pin strike.  Misfires or cartridges that would not fire at all were common with these early rounds. SOLD

 

No. 8 Fired Henry Cartridge Case - US Cartridge Company Headstamp: A fired cartridge case with clear headstamp.  SOLD

 

No. 9  Fired Henry Cartridge Case - No Headstamp: A fired cartridge case with no headstamp.  SOLD
