Old Winchester Bullets

[FONT=&amp]I have a full box of Winchester 350gr cast bullets for the .45-75 Winchester Model 1876 Rifle.

[FONT=&amp]I also have several loose bullets of the same caliber and configuration. These were found in an old barn in [/FONT][FONT=&amp]Northern California[/FONT][FONT=&amp] prior to the buildings demolition about 25 years ago.

[FONT=&amp]I've contacted the [/FONT][FONT=&amp]Buffalo[/FONT][FONT=&amp]Bill[/FONT][FONT=&amp]Historical[/FONT][FONT=&amp]Center[/FONT][FONT=&amp] in Cody Wyoming with requests for information. Typically they are the best source of information regarding early [/FONT][FONT=&amp]Winchester[/FONT][FONT=&amp] products. They were unable to help and suggested that I purchase a copy of The Winchester Price and Identification guide. I have that copy and unfortunately it does not contain any information regarding [/FONT][FONT=&amp]Winchester[/FONT][FONT=&amp] brand bullets.

[FONT=&amp]I then contacted the website of the International Cartridge Collectors Association. I was hoping to get an accurate date of production for these bullets and an idea of collector value. They weren't able to offer much help but, they did link me to a recent auction site where an intact box of bullets dating from the same period for the much more common .44-40 WCF cartridge sold for $800

[FONT=&amp]Based on the label of my box of bullets I believe that it dates from between 1876 to 1885.
Any cartridge or bullet collectors out there with info on old Winchester Bullets? [/FONT]
