Re: you have a rear sight?

Good morning, Dick,

On the "trifecta" question I am afraid that I struck out. I never got into the packaging aspect of the "Collector Ammo" acquisitions. I did have a couple of old original FA boxes which I had acquired several years ago (at the very beginning of my "collecting re-birth in 2001), but as I recall theye were pretty much stock FA packaging which (I believe) I had used as trades toward some TRAPDOOR parts/acoutrements at one of our OGCA meetings several years back. I did, however, find in one of my ammo storage boxes (2) of what I believe are rather "minty" 2.400"-long .45-80 LRR rounds with FA headstamps (acquired, I believe, from our friend Ken McPheeters in San Antonio:

The Headstamps read: "R 82 F 9" and "R 83 F 6". I know that a year or so ago you had acquired a quantity of the .45-80 FA ammo, but if you have any use for these (2) it would certainly be my pleasure to add them to your supply.

Very best to you and Kay,
