Z3639 90 Bore .36 Needle Gun Cartridge by Eley of London
Description: Nice .90 bore cartridge for use in the single shot "garden guns." These cartridges were popular in Europe from the 1850's to 1890's. The case is made of brass foil wrapped in paper. The primer is inside of the head or base of the cartridge. This on still retains its paper label that reads, "ELEY'S NEEDLE GUN CARTRIDGE 90." I have included a photo of the box these would have been packaged in but it is not included with the bullet.
Measures: OAL 1.365" CL .963
Reference: Logan Pg. 44
