Odd stamp on a .22 long rifle box


#1

Can anyone tell me what the ‘RECLASSIFIED’ stamp on this Remington box might indicate?

Hi Guy,
REM-139 in “American 22 Rimfire Boxes”, by Robert Buttweiler, has a 1956 Rifle Match box with that stamp: “(did not meet “Match” specifications)”. It could be the same.

Sam,
Thanks. I have the Buttweiller catalog, but managed to overlook the box you pointed out. It interesting that, rather than pack these non-match quality cartridges in another box, the company added the stamp, giving the .22 rimfire box collectors another one to look out for.
