Books and related:
Publications - George Hoyem's web site; a source for high quality,
informative books for cartridge collectors. His four volumes of
History and Development of Small Arms Ammunition are a must for
any serious cartridge collector.
A new offering from WCF Publications, WINCHESTER Cartridge Boxes, A Gun Collectors' Guide 1856 - 1956 by Ray Giles & Dan Shuey will be available in the fall of 2006. Visit the WCF Publications web site for information.
Arms - Auction Arms is a good site for buying and selling
collectible live ammunition, both singles and boxes. Unfortunately,
you have to sort through a lot of items to find anything really good, and
many of the listed items have starting bids or reserves that are much higher
than they are really worth.
E-bay - While the oldest and most
popular general auction site on the internet, E-bay has an anti-gun
philosophy. They prohibit guns and live ammunition from being auctioned, but
it is still a good site for some really great empty cartridge boxes. The
occasional full box still slips by the notice of their auction police.
Virginia Civil War Relics - Plez Bagby's relic web site; specializes in buckles and cartridge box plates, but also includes a wide array of other Civil War items for sale, with pictures and descriptions.
