Boxer(?) ID and Worth?

Just got this round. It’s a bit out of my area, co I’d appreciate an exact ID and an idea what it,s worth.
Paper-covered brass foil case, riveted steel base, brass rivet, copper primer. Case is approx. 13.89mm x 50.61mm, rim diameter is 18.93mm.


It looks like a .577 Snider to me.

If this helps, the bullet diameter at the case mouth is .542in.

Hi Jon,

It’s a Canadian made .577 Snider, first pattern (with paper covering). Full packets and single rounds made by DC in the 1880-90’s are quite common, and I think it must be the cheapeast variant you can find.



Of course it is. :-(
