Description:

Constructed from tan paper wrapped cardboard, the box is sealed with a green label marked ".44 FLAT R.F./Winchester/Make." on one side and both ends, and the Winchester guarantee on the remaining side. The lid is covered with a green and black picture label with a 44 Henry cartridge in the center, the "H" trademark in the upper right corner, ".44/Flat" in the upper left, and the text "50 CARTRIDGES/STETSON'S PATENT OCT. 31, 1871./FOR THE/WINCHESTER RIFLE MODEL 1866/MANUFACTURED BY THE/WINCHESTER REPEATING ARMS CO./NEW HAVEN, CONN., U.S.A." in the center.

Rating Definition:

Fine overall, with mild wear and staining. The seal label is torn, and the top label may have had tape removed from it. A plastic seal has been applied to the box, preventing a count of ammunition.
