Original box labels for .44 centerfire Remington Conversions (and Colt).  Size when printing then use rubber cement.

Here is a new box label i copied for Frankford Arsenal .44 Martin cartridges for Remington and Colt Conversions.  It is a duplicate of an original, except originals were "12 Cartridges" in a packet.  I changed the 12 to 50 for modern box.



Contact me for an Apple pages doc. file that prints 3 on a page.  You can convert to Word doc. I printed it on parchment paper.  Looks great.  Fits .45 Colt or .45 Schofield Pioneer cartridge boxes (from Buffalo Arms) perfectly.

Where these early 44 Colt cartridges charged with the Smoot primers?

I do not think so as the Smoot primer was not patented until 7 years after 1875:
