This is an old Winchester crate marked for 10,000 rounds of .22 caliber short blank ammunition. Measures 9 1/2" x 18" x 4". Its constructed of pine with plenty of old milling marks. All four sides of the crate are well marked. Length-sides both read:
- SMALL ARMS AMMUNITION
- W METALLIC CARTRIDGES W
- MADE IN U.S.A.
- WINCHESTER REPEATING ARMS CO
- NEW HAVEN, CONN U.S.A.
The short sides are both marked:
- .22 SHORT
along with numbers K225IR, 98, and 21.
Box is in overall good to vg condition and typical of most crates, is only missing its lid. This would make a nice accessory to almost any Winchester collection...especially to an old Model 1890 .22 Pump rifle.
