Finally!  Its been 3 years since i got an original box for a Marbles tang sight for the 73.  Well the search for the matching sight finally came to an end yesterday. Marbles-W7.jpgImage Enlarger

I was surprised at how hard it was to find one.  


I know most of you guys are lyman guys but since no one else i know collects stuff like this, i figured i could show it off here.

That's a great find.  Any paper items in good condition are hard to find.  I don't recall ever seeing this box for sale?  Any idea of the date of the box? Tom Rowe shows a Marbles list that identifies it for the 32, 38 and 44 Cal. 1873's.  I don't believe that Stroebel shows any info on this sight?

I won the box on ebay a while ago.  If i remember correctly i didn't pay more than 50 bucks for it.  I have no idea what the date of the box would be.  I've only see the  usual W1  and W9 boxes.  So when i saw this box i took a chance with the price being so low.  Has the original red wax paper and instruction fold out too.   Laugh
