We just picked up a couple collections of artillery and other relics we are starting to list. Note that there will be more than artillery, bullets and fuses listed. We have buttons, camp items, US plates, etc.

Mansfield, Ohio Show was good as always. Our next show will be in Brandon, MS on June 8 and 9.

We continue to experience intermittent delivery of order emails, so it's wise to email us directly at cwbullet@hotmail.com and carl@sitherwood.com to be sure your order gets through. Thank you for your patience while we try to address this.

B00238 - 69 Carcano with hard to find serrations on rings
Sorry, this item is no longer available!



Item Number: B00238

Item Title: 69 Carcano with hard to find serrations on rings

Price: $60

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: CS

Type: Carcano or Garibaldi

Size: 69 caliber

Cartridge:

MM#:

TT#: 193

Location Recovered: Virginia

Description:These were made in Raleigh, NC. A small subset of those manufactured there have serrations in the rings, presumably to better hold the cartridge glue. From personal experience, I'd say 1 in 100 have these serrations and I grab everyone I can find, which is about one every 2-3 years.

This one came out of John Clark's collection. He was one of the owners of Clark Brothers of Warrenton, VA.
