Dating remington ammo boxes
This masterpiece of aerodynamics consistently prints tiny 100-yard groups and transfers tremendous knockdown force out to the farthest reaches of shotgun range. In field testing, this huge .58-caliber slug produced gaping wound channels and crumpled every deer it touched with a single shot.From 5 to 200 yards, it yields perfect mushrooms and over 95% weight retention thanks to its spiral nose cuts, bonded construction and high-strength cartridge brass jacket. Solid early-1890s blk pwdr "loose pack" box (as opposed to the later "heads & tails" box).It obviously should have been: PRIMED / METALLIC CASE / UMC.While the contrast of the black print on the dark blue label makes it somewhat hard to read, this is one of the most desirable of all the .41 Short RF boxes by ANY maker and from any time period! Scarce, early box, mid/late-1870s, with "Metallic Cartridges" callout and early, incorrect Stetson's Patent date (Oct 24). This particular box is reportedly from an original (partial) case found in the basement of the Browning Bros' Ogden, Utah building in the 1870s.The outstanding condition of this box does nothing to belie that claim.Cartridges also appear to be entirely native to the box.
So here's an "almost Winchester" box of Henrys at about half the price of an early Winchester box and far more desirable than the common, comparably priced 1900s UMC or Remington-UMC boxes.

This box is from the George Kass collection--no better pedigree or provenance exists! Picturing Marlin's "Standard Revolver" this little beauty of a very early UMC box, even while msg the back edge of the lid (see pix), retains 80 % of the side seal label and is full of original ctdgs. Ctdgs, while apparently not all native to the box, are 100% correct impressed "H" rds. Box is solid (tho left end of lid is replaced) and contains 3 original cartridges.
