Z7592 .56-52 Spencer with Double Shot Extended Green Sabot
Description: Rare .56-52 shot cartridge with a double load and an extended green paper sabot. The paper sabot patent was held by Henry W. Mason of South Coventry, Connecticut. He was awarded Patent No. 219,491 dated September 9, 1879. A.M.C.Co. used N.P.E. cases from Winchester, U.M.C., and U.S.C.Co. to load these shot cartridges. This example has a primed case manufactured by Winchester Repeating Arms Company of New Haven, Connecticut. These cartridges are very rare due to the easily damaged extended shot sabots.
This example is in decent shape. The case has some spotting with one ding to the very edge of the rim. The green paper sabot still retains some of the original wax coating and appears to have a very small drop of glue down in the very tip to hold it together.
Headstamp: Raised "H” within an impressed circle.
Measures: OAL 1.975” CL 1.030” RD .640” HD .558” CM .518” BDaCM .493”
