.44 CALIBER “ARMY” REVOLVER CARTRIDGE BY JOHNSTON & DOW

$115.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1212-162

Johnston & Dow received patents #33,393, #34,061, and #35,687 dated October 1, 1861, January 7, and June 24, 1862 for their cartridges. Using paper or fabric that was treated to make it combustible, the cartridge case was rolled and pasted to the bullet. It was then coated with collodion to make it waterproof.

The fact that many of the “J&D” cartridges are still recovered in complete condition attests to the "waterproof" claims of the inventors.

These are often called “skin” cartridges due to an improper identification in an early reference book.

This .44 caliber cartridge features a pointy ball with one groove and a rebated base. The cartridge case remains in good condition with no breaks.

Reference: “Round Ball to Rimfire” Part Two, page 108, #853.   [jet] [ph:jet]
