Z5708 Empty .32 Short Rimfire Box by U.M.C., Dog Head Logo
Description: Decent two-piece empty box that once contained 50 .32 short rimfire cartridges manufactured by the Union Metallic Cartridge Company of Bridgeport, Connecticut. This is known as a picture box from the 1870’s with the early "Dog Head Logo.” This trademark was issued on November 10, 1868 and used through 1886. There is a label replacement to the corner on the top left side of the top label. The right side of the top is missing, and the top has some splits in the seams. There is light soiling on the top and sides with heavier soiling on the bottom of the box. A hard-to-find early box!
