I hope someone on this forum can help me. Can I assume, that the box in question on the right, “NOT MARKED U.S.PROPERTY”, contains the “SAWTOOTH” type brass OOB shotgun rounds.
I know of a box for sale and is still sealed. It is NOT marked
US PROPERTY and is strictly a WINCHESTER REPEATING ARMS CO box.
I have a similar box, ( box on the left side of photo ) but is marked US PROPERTY and is also marked “div of WESTERN CARTRIDGE CO”. I realize the box for sale is somewhat earlier ( not marked div of western ) than mine, but would anyone know if the saw tooth rounds would be in the earlier box? I have included a split photo of my box and the box in question.
Any help would be much appreciated
ps…does anyone know when Winchester started marking the closing wads with the plain “OOB” in relation to the closing wad in the photo?
