This rare antique .44-40 ammo box is a first issue of the popular third style black powder box.  This antique ammo box is seldom encountered and hard to find. These Winchester boxes are very desirable to collectors and are always in great demand because of the “old-time” graphics. A picture of a Model 73’ carbine is shown on the front side label. The labels specify that the cartridges are for a “Winchester Rifle Model 1873”. The unheadstamped cartridge pictured on this box is the all-important factor in determining the age and rarity of an otherwise common box.
