In the past year a new member of the Kansas Cartridge Collectors Association gave a historical treasure to another member of the KCCA so it could be brought to light and displayed. The treasure/collection consists of a headstamp bunter, partial draw set and bullet for the 10.4 Vetterli cartridge produced by the Kansas City Brass & Metal (Manufacturing) Company during WW1. All the items were affixed to 3x5 inch note cards many many years ago by the father in-law of the new KCCA member. How and when these items were obtained by the father in-law (who lived in Kansas City) is unknown but all indications are it happened many decades ago.
Each card prepared by the father in-law has a typed description for the item attached to the card.
Below are a series of photos showing the collection:
Several photos of the headstamp bunter (for a raised headstamp), dated (19)17.
Items on the 3x5" cards.
This collection was on display at the recent KCCA cartridge show.
I have to admit it was quite a thrill to hold and photograph such historical items!
