This is an original paper box for the metallic cartridges for the 12mm pinfire revolver. This paper box measures 4-1/4th inches by 1-5/8ths inches in overall size and stands 1--1/4th inches tall. The top of the box has the printing that states that they are for the LeFaucheaux revolvers and are 12mm in size. The paper was separated along the seams and has been put back together using acid free archival tape. It is priced accordingly. There is also one of the original cartridges from the box enclosed. These were one of the most reliable weapons of the Civil War era. They were designed with a pin in the bottom of the cartridge. When the hammer of the revolver strikes the pin it drives the pin against the fulminate inside a percussion cap contained inside of the cartridge base. This detonates the cartridge and fires the bullet. Thes cartridge is in excellent non-excavated condition and you can even read a portion of the maker's mark on the bottom of the cartridges. It is a fine original Civil War era 12mm pinfire pattern revolver cartridges. You get the cartridge and the original factory box you see pictured for the price.
