French Snider


#1

French made brass foil Snider cartridge.

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




#2

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.
