I am still trying to get my Winchester boxes sorted out and am now working the after 1965 boxes and realize that I don’t know even the approximate dates when the W-W headstamped cartridge boxes were used.
Following are three types of Winchester boxes that were probably used in the late 1960s until the 1980s. Would appreciate advise on approximately the years when these were produced.
My guess is that the Yellow box with red W came first since it occurs with both “Olin Corporation” and “Olin Matherieson”. Second was the yellow X box and finally the red X box because it also occurs in the larger size with the Styrofoam insert. Just my guess and would appreciate comment from those who know.
Thanks for the help!
