Z4486 Complete Packet for "Six Seamless Skin" Cartridges by D.C. Sage
Description: Decent original unopened packet that contains 6 seamless skin cartridges for the .44 Colt Army revolver. Unlike most packets these were issued and wrapped with buff paper and weren't shellacked. This packet does have soiling from age and still has part of the original pull string. A couple of the corners have splits but it's still a complete and unopened packet. The labels reads:
