$85.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 490-1995

The Spencer “56-52” cartridge was a .50 caliber Spencer cartridge made for the civilian market. The Ordnance Department never bought any of these. Fitch, Van Vechten & Company was only in business from 1864 to 1865 although the FVV & Co headstamp continued to be used by successive companies for a few years after.

This cartridge is constructed in the typical Spencer manner. Lead bullet with two grooves crimped into a copper rimfire case.  Small mouse chew on one side of the bullet nose.

FVV & Co marked cartridges are very rare.  [jet]

Shipment via UPS required.
