- 1880 Frankford Arsenal .45 Colt Box W/ 4 Rounds - $125
This is a nice representative example of a 12 round box of .45 Colt ammunition as produced in 1880. The box includes 4 original rounds which are in nice condition as shown. The box itself is complete but has been taped as in the photos.
1938 8x56 - German Production - $30
- This is an excellent example of a 10 round box of Nazi production 8x56 ammunition. The box, chargers, and rounds are all Waffen marked and are in equally nice condition.
- WW2 Japanese Type 92 7.7mm Loaded Feed Strips In Original Boxes - $200
This lot includes two WW2 dated Japanese Type 92 feed strips each containing 30 rounds of 7.7mm ammunition. Each package bears the Japanese production date of 15.1 which corresponds to January of 1941. The unopened box still bears both the original paper seal along with the data tag on the side. The opened box is missing its paper seal but still retains its data tag as shown. Condition is very fine as shown. These feed strips were made for the Type 92 heavy machine gun which utilized a French Hotchkiss style feed system. The 92 was a robust and reliable weapons platform and was known as the “woodpecker” for its distinct cyclic rate. These are scarce items and are tough to find these days. Detailed photos are linked in the album below.
- 1920s Peters .45 Colt Auto CF (ACP), 2 boxes - $140
This lot is a pair of vintage Peters .45 Colt Auto CF (ACP) 50 round boxes. The packaging is in fair condition with the first of the boxes being the nicest. The labels look great and the boxes themselves are firm. The labels state that the ammunition is specially adapted for function in Colt pistols and Thompson sub guns, super cool. I have not counted the individual rounds but each box appears full.
- 1920s Peters .38 Colt Auto, 2 Boxes - $110
This lot is a pair of 1920s vintage 50 round Colt .38 Auto boxes. The packaging is worn as shown but would make for an excellent addition to a period collection. Both boxes appear full but I did not count the rounds.
- 1920s .32 Short Colt CF, 3 Boxes - $160
This lot is a trio of 1920 Peters .32 Colt Short CF cartridge boxes. All are in nice shape with complete and readable labels. All appear full but I have not counted the rounds.

This lot consists of 4 boxes of 1957 production French .45 ACP ammunition. All boxes and labels are in good shape as shown below, one box has tape.
