Please Note: The small wood UMC box included here is used to store the rare Volcanic bullets.

EXTRAORDINARILY RARE LACQUERED TIN FOR 200 NO. 1 PISTOL CARTRIDGES FOR THE VOLCANIC PISTOL. This exceedingly rare tin measures 4-1/4″ x 2-3/8″ x 1-1/8″, of light tin construction with lacquered exterior and no external label. Label, as it should be, is inside the lid with correct printing & layout with the date “AUGUST 8TH, 1854”. Box is accompanied by 75 of these extremely rare, orig, live cartridges and one bullet missing its primer & charge. Occasionally one of these cartridges will turn up and very rarely a lid or bottom of a box will come to light, but a complete orig box with this many rds of orig ammunition is an extreme rarity. CONDITION: Box is fine with a few minor nicks & chips in the lacquer coating with wear on the bottom; label shows bug damage around the edges affecting the border but none of the lettering; cartridges are in a separate box and are all extremely fine with some minor oxidation on five or six of loose rds. This is probably a once in a lifetime opportunity to own such a box and this many rds of ammunition. 4-46191 JR363 (10,000-15,000)
