Nice Group of Seven - 100 Year Old .22 Short Cartridges
Here's Another Group of Seven ca. 1920, .22 Short Cartridges ! Not the exact cartridges pictured, but nearly identical in bullet patina, and head stamps, as all the examples were very similar. These came out of an old red & white box of Remington-UMC Lesmok Cartridges. All the cartridge cases show some discoloration and the bullets are oxidized almost white. As difficult and expensive as it is to locate actual Civil War Period .22 cartridges, these are much more affordable, and will Display Great with that little Smith & Wesson No. 1, Manhattan, or Allen & Wheelock Revolver !

Nice Pair of Post War 7mm Pinfire Cartridges But Nearly Identical to Those that would have been used in the Folding Trigger Pinfire Revolvers During the War
Here is a Nice Pair of 7mm Pinfire Pistol Cartridges ! They both show very nice copper cases, with bullets having considerable white oxidation, though the cartridges are both nice and tight. Both have a head stamp of “Fiocchi”, an Italian Cartridge Company, that started business in 1876. These likely date ca. pre-1900, as by that time the pin fire cartridge was virtually obsolete.
