HUDSON BAY COMPANY TOMBSTONE CARTOUCHE
« on: August 09, 2020, 08:47:03 PM »
Does anyone have reference material regarding when HBC stopped using the Tombstone Fox Cartouche?  I am thinking somewhere between 1870 and 1890

Very good guess!
The absolute latest one that I have reference for is a tombstone marked Barnett Northwest gun dated 1900.

Check out Gooding's book "Trade Guns of the Hudson's Bay Company, 1670-1970".
