Brass wrapped cartridges


#1

Good day all, please can someone point me in the direction to find out about these cartridges? I got my first one and Henk told me that you can collect them according to inspection hole shape… i didnt even know about the inspection hole!!!

Thanks in advance,
Jonathan

You also have the Snider, plus the ,450’ and the ,500’s in their various lengths, plus the experimental and the coiled tinned-steel cases. Plus a couple of coiled cases have a headstamp. A broad arrow in the iron base disc.

In the M.H. you have patch colors & Rifle or Carbine load plus the Indian variations.

PLUS blank, shot, & dummies in both board & coal-dust variations.

There is a Mark 1 in my latest sale, see lot 408.

Seems to be no end to them.
