posting for a friend that has this cartridge board. On the back bottom right corner is  serial 376 physical size is about 40x60 inches. He is wondering if the Cody Museum or anybody in WACA might have any info on this piece as to where it might have been shipped or how many where made,any type of info would be greatly appreciated. I don’t have a picture yet but he’s trying to send one.thanks

I have a friend that has one of these too.  I will ask him what he knows about these.  I doubt that there are any records as to where these went.  Here is a picture of a poster without the frame.  winchester-double-w-cartridge-board-unknown1.jpgImage Enlarger

 

It should have a dark frame.  The backside should be covered with something like brown butcher paper.  The value can be in the 5 figures if it is all correct.  Many time cartridges are missing and the wire to hold them onto the board has been replaced.

Thanks Chuck, he knows the value and is keeping it, just is interested in tracking down some history on it. I do have a picture of the backside showing serial number but cannot send to this site.

There were over 1,000 of these made, but no one knows exactly how many.  My friend's is #1000 something?  Some info says they didn't make this many?  They went to the large gun dealers and hardware stores.  Without something on the back of the board indicating where it went you will never know.

I have the lithograph board from 1907, I believe. I know the history on mine. The Hardware store threw it in the trash pile. Somebody scavenged it.
