French Snider

French made brass foil Snider cartridge.

Can anyone identify the maker, and tell me between what years these were made.

Are you quite sure that is French? It looks Canadian to me (unless I am missing something)


I was told it was French, but I could have been misinformed. If it is Canadian I’d appreciate the same information, who was the maker, and between what years these were made?

I agree with Tony, this is a “Canadian, 2nd Pattern” made since 1886 by the Government Cartridge Factory at Québec. As far as I can tell is not listed anymore in production reports published after December 1894.

Thank you for the information.
