    Eley 12 Gauge Improved Shot Wire Shot Cartridges No1 - 18137:2

    These are rare Eley Bros Limited London 12 gauge Cylindrical shot cartridges for breach loaders. These are Eleys improved patent wire cartridges introduced in 1836 and used with 12 bore muzzle loading shotguns to ease loading and dispensing with the shot flask. The shot cartridges were usually carried in a small pouch and were put on top of the over powder wad when loading the shotgun. The cartridges consist of a wire cage containing lead shot with a fine bone meal packing. The cartridges all have age related splits to the sides of the paper wrapper. The cartridges consist of a thin paper wrapping with Cylindrical Cartridges For Breach loaders on the sides together with Eley Bros Limited London and a green paper top to show which way the shot cartridge was inserted in the barrel, i.e. the green label was facing the muzzle. One of the cartridges retains its original red 12 bore at the bottom of the cartridge. No licence is required to collect these cartridges if retained as part of a collection or display. The price is per cartridge and there are 5 cartridges available. Sn 18137:2
