Shotgun shell demand blossomed at the turn of the century and the competition quickly created a Renaissance of incredible artwork and graphics on shell boxes to make their products stand out on retailer's shelves.

This display will feature approximately 45 shell boxes dating from 1890 to 1950's in exceptional condition, from the collection of Jim and Julie Krebsbach of Eagan, MN, that highlight this desirable collecting period. Currently on display in the Ducks Unlimited Waterfowling Heritage Center.
