Buyer Tip: If you're the
High Bidder in an auction when it closes, don't assume you're the final High Bidder.
Someone could outbid you in the final seconds of the auction if your Max Bid isn't
high enough. You're not the high Bidder until you've been notified by email that
you are. All Auctions are conducted in Pacific Time.
In excellent condition, this .42 Cupfire cartridge (the so-called “Army size”) was produced by Plant’s Manufacturing Company of New Haven, Conn. in the 1860’s. It was loaded from the front of the revolver cylinder and the firing pin would reach the edge of the cartridge base through a small hole at the rear of the cylinder. It was one of many attempts to get around the Rollin White patent owned by Smith & Wesson for a bored through revolver cylinder. A unique piece of early cartridge Americana. Thanks for looking, and please email us with any questions PRIOR to bidding. Winning bidder pays $12 shipping (UPS ground). Post Office money order assures quick shipping; other checks are accepted, but must clear. For complete information on the enjoyment of cartridge collecting, visit www.cartridgecollectors.org
