Please note: Unless otherwise indicated, the pictures on this web site are my property, and should not be used by anyone without my permission.


PLEASE ALSO NOTE: Beginning May 1st, I will temporarily stop taking orders for items from my web site, but will resume taking orders November 1st. During this break I hope to do a little 'dusting and cleaning' with the anticipated goal of updating my web site a bit. I will still continue with my monthly write-ups, and welcome your emails with questions about cartridges you'd like to identify or are wanting to sell, or to just say hello. Thanks for bearing with me.


Posters  (shipping on posters is $10 if shipped in tube or $2 if shipped folded). 

WINCHESTER

This 1881 Winchester poster depicts numerous cartridges and shotshells with prices, Winchester Model 1876 and Hotchkiss rifles, and loading tools. These are high quality posters, and appear to be fairly old. Some show slight darkening at the edges which will not be evident when they are matted and framed. They measure 25" x 35", and are $35 each.  Enlarge this picture

SMITH & WESSON 

This 1883 Smith & Wesson poster depicts eight top break revolvers with prices and optional extras, ammunition prices, and reloading tools. These are not the best copies, as they have some scattered small areas around the border detail that did not print, but they are still quite interesting and have lots of great information regarding the pistols and options that were available at the time.They measure 18" x 24" and are priced at $10 each.

SHARPS  

This poster is a copy of an original drawing by Winston O. Smith, which appears as plate 15 in his 1943 book The Sharps Rifle, the first book devoted to Christian Sharps and his rifle. Measuring 16" x 21", it depicts front and rear views of Sharps Model 1851, 1855, 1852 (& 1853), and 1859 (& later models) locks. These are drawn in minute detail to scale, with all parts shown with their correct markings. Just prior to Mr. Smith's death in the early 1980s, 500 copies of the drawing were produced on heavy stock; all were signed by Mr. Smith and 200 of these were numbered. These are priced at $20 for a signed and numbered copy; $15 if just signed. The lines in the drawings look a bit broken up when viewed on-line, but that is not actually the case; these copies are the same high quality as the original drawing which was used for the book, and from which the copies were made. Enlarge this picture
