Question 30 rimfire

I think this dates to pre 1920.
Can anyone date it more closely by the box?
Thanks in advance.

With the manufacturer identified as "The Union Metallic Cartridge Co.", the box has to date from before 1911, when the name was changed to "Remington Arms Union Metallic Cartridge Co."

The Sharp's 4-barrel pepperbox was chambered in .30 rimfire.

Whitneyville Armory also produced a .30 cal rimfire revolver during the 1870's. Birdshead, spur trigger, tip-up, of course.

The last UMC catalog was published in 1910, and the .30 Short rimfire was listed in it at $9.00/thousand. In 1911, it became Remington-UMC.
