I have a vintage Ruger revolver, '75, here and I have a vintage Ruger box, red cardboard, with the end label that matches the description of the wheel gun. Anyone have info that would verify that the box and gun are contemporaries?

I believe You have the right box for your Ruger.

No xpert, but I've got a book! :tongue:

In 61-62, they were shipped in white boxes, In 63 they used black boxes with a red eagle, yellow wreath and white lettering. Starting in 73 they shipped guns in bright red boxes with white lettering. Sometime in the early 80's they used a yellow box and black eagle and lettering.
I've seen real early SBH's in mahogany cases. Never could afford one.

Thanks! I went on to the RCA but it didn't look like it had much traffic and I didn't want to have to wait for the registration proccess.
