Early american unknowns

.50-70 inside primed case with hunting load marked 50-69 Jenkins.
Necked down inside primed .50 pistol with ball load.

Any ideas about these ?


Somewhere in the dark recesses of my memory I see a post-War Of The Rebellion Jenkins Rifle. Chambered for the 50-70 Govt?


Would that be the unCivil war to which you refer ?
