Gun Labels in 1893

Post by butlersrangers »

This appears to be 'state of the art' Gun Presentation, used by the War Department, for their 1893 Columbian Exposition display.

The ID-tags appear to be bright lettering, painted on black enameled thin metal plates, with bendable tabs.

(An interesting piece of 19th century trivia):
