Winchester 8 Gauge Shot Shells In Original Box
A very uncommon if not scarce original Winchester box of 50 leader 8 gauge empty primed shells. These are Winchester leader (1901) paper shells with factory primers that were never loaded. The 8 gauge were buit by Wincehster from 1897 to 1920. These cases were built at some point in time from 1903 to 1920. The 1901 marking replaced the Winchester name on the headstamp. All cases remain in excellent condition and are 3 1/4" in length. The box is original with the last patten date of July 14 1903. The box is quite sound with partial and repairable end labels. A scarce item for the Winchester or shot shell collection.
