A friend asked me if I had ever heard of an SFM Reference Collection or simply an SFM Collection, and I had to admit I had not.
He then sent me these three images of .22 boxes he estimates were made in the 1890-1910 period.
The Winchester box marked “MADE IN BAVARIA” amazes me!
These three boxes all have a reference or catalog number written on them. They were described as being from the “SFM Reference Collection”. The boxes contain cases that have been section along with notes written about components.
Apparently there are other similar boxes known.
Can anyone shed more light on their relationship, if any, with SFM or provide any information on an “SFM Reference Collection”???
