This nearly full (a few missing from top layer) primer tin is for 500 cartridge primers. There are ten cardboard layers holding 50 primers each with a small piece of white cloth between each layer. Label is undated and reads, “500 CARTRIDGE PRIMERS. This primer is suitable for black powder charges only. It is used in all Cal. .45 and shot gun ammunition, and in Cal. .30 gallery practice cartridges. Manufactured at FRANKFORD ARSENAL.”  Label shows soiling and edge wear, all text remains legible. Can has a screw-on lid and overall has developed a dark gray patina. An interesting item from the development of modern non-corrosive primers, circa 1900.   [jet] [ph:L]
