Z5713 .30 Cupfire Cartridge A.M.C.Co.
Description: Here is a very nice and clean .31 cupfire cartridge for use with the Plant and Eagle Arms revolvers. These cartridges were originally patented by Willard C. Ellis and John N. White on July 12, 1859, as Patent No. 24,726. The edge of the cup held the fulminate much like the rim of a rimfire. This allowed Ellis and White to circumvent the Rollin White and Smith & Wesson patents.

This cartridge was manufactured by the American Metallic Cartridge Company located in South Coventry, Connecticut. According to Barber, this company was in business between 1891-1898. These were packeted 50 to a box and labeled as the No. 30 cartridge. The bullet is well seated with plenty of lubricant. There is one very small dent on the edge of the case mouth.
