These photos might drive shotshell guys nuts. Call it the “spot the difference(s)” game (like those in the long car ride game book)
I have had these (and a “zillion”…maybe only a few hundred…others) for over 20 years and certainly are a long way from those of you who know me to be fascinated by “color tips” and/or “special purpose” rounds.
They came from the Remington print shop at Bridgeport…mid to late 80’s…and to my eye…all have differences, some as subtle as the actual box flap design to the location of a lot number. In some cases the differences might be on the other side of the box. (I have spent hours staring at some trying to discern the variations…and they are there…from one to another)
These have never been folded…yes…they are mint flats.
In the case of this High Velocity “Flying Mallard” box (certainly a favorite box of mine as a young collector…way before I acquired these), I have 13 more in this design in 28, 20, 16 and 12 gauge.
(And as mentioned 100’s more of various other Remington products from unfolded CF boxes to 2 piece shotshell label wraps and a large collection of “case” box labels…those about 7” square.
Slick Rick’s .410 photos motivated me.
It will take a swift kick to do many more…unless there is an easy way to copy multiple Photobucket IMG codes in mass…as opposed to the individual “copy and paste” one at a time procedure ???
