.58 Roberts Centerfire Variant?


This cartridge appears to be a .58 Roberts but I’m having difficulty tracking down the primer type and time period on this example. Can anyone assist? The copper appears to be a Berdan type but I could be wrong.

Thanks everyone. Honestly I didn’t even think about it being the Rem. Carbine cartridge because the one that I already have has a brass primer cap. BDGREEN…thanks for posting that reference. I haven’t seen that one before.
