I can count myself very lucky on this… I found a box of old cartridges at the flea market, most all are amazing finds by themselves for a market. not pictured are such items as maynard, different types of spencers, lipfires, cupfires, even a 577 howdah pistol ctg.
These 4 are the most amazing things i have found in a very long time.

54 caliber tinned morse carbine, Frankford Arsenal production.
45 colt inside primed multiball wright patent #207582,
50-70-450 rimfire C1866,
58 long gatling.
44 magnum on a keychain for size reference.
These all came from the same collection, and who knows why they drilled 2 holes in each case. But, I’ll keep them. I don’t mind a bit.
Any opinions or corrections are very welcome! I’m 98% positive on the id of these, but I learn lots of things everyday.
