.50 CALIBER CARTRIDGE FOR SMITH CARBINE

$65.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 286-326

This is an original .50 caliber cartridge for the Smith carbine. Manufactured under Poultney’s patent.  The patent (#40,988 dated December 15, 1863) was originally granted to Thomas Rodman and Silas Crispin who assigned it to Thomas Poultney.  The cases were made of brass foil and paper with a perforation in the base. This cartridge uses the same lead bullet as does the Gallager, but the cartridge here is shaped to fit into the receiver of the Smith carbine. The Smith cartridges are much less common than the Gallagers. This specimen is in solid condition with one small piece of paper missing opposite the seam.  [jet]
