Rare Packet of 12 Eley 14 Gauge 1 ¼ Ounces Of Shot Improved Shot Wire Shot Cartridges No1 - 18137:1

These are rare packet of 12 Eley Bros Limited London 14 gauge 1 ¼ ounces of number 1 lead shot, cylindrical shot cartridges for breach loading shotguns. These cartridges are Eleys improved patent wire cartridges introduced in 1836 used with 14 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 wrapped in a buff paper outer tube. The end of the tube is sealed with a white label with Eley Improved Patent Wire Cartridge No1 printed on it. There is also a black rip tab to split the shot cartridge protective outer paper wrapper when loading. The cartridge packet is made of a strong buff paper and the cartridges inside are wrapped with loading instructions as seen in a photograph. The packet has not been opened any further than illustrated due the green and white circular printed sealing label on one end of the packet and the knot in the string being very tight. The sealing label is printed with Eleys Patent Wire Cartridge 14 Ga Oz 1 ¼ No1 indicating that they are 14 bore cartridges with 1 ¼ ounces of number 1 shot. The base of the cartridges has printed on 14 Gauge Bottom in black. No licence is required to collect these cartridges if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 18137:1
