new to the waca crowd but not new to collecting winchesters.

have more than my share of 9422’s, 90 plus and all a different variation  and other makes of 22 rim fires. vintage 22 rim fire ammo is plentiful around here also.

not a firearm question and not winchester but close.

i recently had a attic find of a western ammo die cut.

i had bought a winchester cannon box at a auction and afterwords a lady asks me if i collect winchester stuff. didn’t want to show much excitement so calmly said  ‘sometimes i do’. she said she had a winchester ammo poster she would like to sell. ut-oh . her husband had found it in an attic of a house that was being torn down.  money was tight on that particular day and i knew she and her husband were antique collectors and most likely knew what they had. made a date for the next day to take a look. went to their house and it looked like a antique toy store. husband was in the yard messing around. we went in and met his wife. still ,not trying to look too excited. she reaches up on top of a cabinet and pulls this dusty old pasteboard item down and opens it up. it is a western ammo die cut, oh i’m sorry i thought it was winchester she said. looked it over real good and was still a little afraid to ask how much. finally asked how much and she said 150.00. didn’t take long to settle that deal. my wife was with me and see knows how crazy i am and she has hung around me long enough to know what some of this stuff is worth, she was a little relieved because she new i might go well over a thousand if i had to.

it is about 5 feet tall and close to 5 feet wide. it folds three ways for easy carry, artist is lynn bouge hunt. a man pointing a double barrel shotgun directly at you with a pointer dog in front of him. the side fold outs show center and rim fire rounds on one side and shotgun ammo boxes on the other.

ammo picture should date the poster around 1910- 1920. excellent condition. the tape/binding that made the hinges has worn considerably, looks like gauze

anybody here have any ideas or comments on the poster.

not too good at getting pictures posted,

 

have a good day, ed.
