Z7479 Civil War .36 Ammunition Packet (Johnston & Dow)
Description: Decent complete packet containing six .36 Colt/Remington Navy cartridge manufactured by Johnston & Dow. There are two versions of this packet. This example has a bold bottom line while the other variant does not. The packet is rather small with a few seams that are splitting Remarkably, the packet has held together. Unlike the wooden block packets offered by Colt, the Johnson & Dow packets are made using a pasteboard box which doesn’t hold up well. The cartridges inside appear to have been exposed to moisture at some point and have expanded in place which is why some seams are split. This packet has the 1861/1862 patent dates. The top seam appears to have been glued at some point. A nice example of a scarcer Civil War ammunition packet for the Colt and Remington Navy revolvers.
Measures: 2.5” x 1.75”
