Description: Rare .44 Crispin pattern rimfire cartridge. This cartridge was invented by Silas Crispin who was awarded Patent No. 49,237 for an improvement on priming metallic cartridges on August 8, 1865. This cartridge is still classified as a rimfire although it doesn't mirror your typical rimfire cartridge. The wide rim in the middle of the case held the fulminate. This cartridge is out of the collection of Dean Thomas and is numbered 310 on the lead bullet. This was sold at auction on November 7-8, 2014, and corresponds to auction lot No. 578 notated as T-310. This example has a few dents between the rim and case mouth. There is also one very small pinhole in the side of the case. Nevertheless, this is a very rare cartridge. It has a pointed projectile with a single cannelure and a copper case.
