    About Mint Pre-War State of New York .58 Caliber Cartridge Box, Sling and Both Plates by Boyd & Sons of Boston. Box about mint, just the slightest crazing of the finish on the front flap. Original SNY box plate retains much of the original gilt. Huge Boyd & Sons manufacturers stamp on the inside flap, with large letter K, as crisp as the day it was made. Box "squeaks" when opened, original tins. Original white buff sling dyed brown buff on the front with large Boyd & Sons maker's mark on the back. Sling about perfect as is the circular eagle plate. A rare box in remarkable condition.

    You reach a customer base that is in many ways completely unknown to the major auction houses, and your marketing to this base is as professional as one could hope for. As I continue to wind down my holdings.
