This revolver cartridge was manufactured by Eley Brothers in London. These cartridges are made of mutton’s intestine and wrapped with thread for strength. They can be loaded in any “Navy” caliber revolver. The outer, white paper envelope was intended to protect the cartridge from being broken or damaged during transport. The brown cloth tear-strip was for easy opening to expose the cartridge. An orange label on the bottom reads “London”. Many of these cartridges were imported by the Confederacy. Good, solid condition and a nice accompaniment to a British percussion revolver.
Comes housed in a 5 x 6 inch display case with black velvet backing and descriptive card.
Inventory Number: BUL 361
