EXCELLENT PACK OF .31 CALIBER CARTRIDGES FOR THE COLT POCKET

$325.00 ON HOLD

Quantity Available: 1

Item Code: 30-2193

The Colt pocket revolver, or “’49 Pocket,” was an immensely popular pistol with early westerners, miners, and travelers, and very popular with Civil War officers as a light, but effective, personal side-arm that would be easy to carry on the march. Colt made more than 300,000 of them from 1850 to 1873, and Whitney produced about 32,000 of his version starting in the late 1850s, giving a time frame for this pack since it is intended for either revolver.

The pack is in excellent condition, with no tears or stains to the waterproofed paper and clear, sharp, black lettering on the applied label. The pack shows just the slightest of wear to the lower left front corner and lower left edge of the label. The label assures a purchaser not just that the cartridges contain genuine “Hazard’s Powder,” but are combustible, meaning they can be loaded without any messy, loose gunpowder, always a consideration if you are loading your guns in the parlor. The pack would look great next to a .31 caliber Colt or Whitney in a display of officer’s effects, or as part of a western display, but is nice enough to go with a fancy cased revolver as well. Copies of these packs are sometimes sold for display, but why buy a copy when you can get an original this nice?  [sr]
