Item Description

Restrictions apply on ammunition orders, please read this entire ad carefully before bidding or offering to buy. Order 5 or more boxes of any Centerfire rifle or pistol ammunition we have and get free shipping. This listing is for the exact box of cartridges in the photo. From a local West Tennessee Estate comes this full factory box of Peters cartridges in the Colt version of the .38 S&W Caliber. The .38 Colt New Police cartridge, of course, was simply a flat nosed .38 S&W. Manufacturer was The Peters Cartridge Company of Cincinnati, OH, and so marked – actually in the King's Mill community. Construction is 150 grain flat nose lead bullet, loaded into brass case with smokeless powder and probably corrosive primers. This cartridge box contains its original 50 cartridges, all full, complete and original. We estimate it was manufactured in the 1920s, at the height of moonshinery and klansmanship in West Tennessee. Box shows wear and separation on the edges, but otherwise minimal. Bullets have a nice white gray patina, and the brass cases only rainbow aging patina. We rate this box as Very Good Condition, but photos ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. This box is period correct for any revolver chambered in .38 S&W or .38 Colt New Police calibers and manufactured prior to World War II. We're offering it for only $ 59.00.
