Hello,

Am I correct in assuming that this .44 Henry package was made before 1866 and is therefore older than the Winchester company?

A fascinating experiment would be for Stefan to email his photo to Merz & ask him what’s he’d PAY for this box.  Something tells me the discrepancy between “buy” & “sell” prices would be alarming.

I can’t imagine anyone here paying so much for it. There is a zero in the amount too much.

What you ask for and what you get don’t necessarily have to match.

Stefan, this box is worth around $8,000 here in the US.  New Haven Arms ammo was made for the Henry rifle.  This box is in the 1862 range.   What does the head stamp look like?  There were 2 styles with one being worth a few thousand more than the other.

The cartridges do not have a headstamp.

All 44 rimfire I have owned or seen was stamped like this. I have never had a full box, just a handful of loose ones. The Henry/66 ammo is harder to find  than the guns! That collection of ammo was quite a find.

I just found the exact same box. Their cartridges also had no headstamp.

According to the description, these are very early cartridges from 1860 – 1863

Stefan – appears you need to throw a few boxes of the collection in your checked baggage and head for the U.S. – the January show in Las Vegas would be the perfect place to trade some of your ammo for some Ben Franklins.

Hello Burt

why should I exchange such a rare and beautiful box for a few printed notes with presidents on them that are billions of copies? 😉

I wouldn’t trade them for dead presidents because they are worth less every day.

Stefan if these are the short pointed bullets and no head stamp these are worth more than 8K.  How about a picture of the side of 1 cartridge?

By the way these are not flats.  Flat nose bullets came later.
