    My friend found this old US Cartridge Trap shooter advertisment board in a back room of a building that he owns.

    Any information about the add. company or shooters would be greatly appreciated.

    The only one that I recognize is Annie Oakley.

    Of course any wild speculation on how much it would be worth is always appreciated.

    The HOF has a very nice example of this piece. I think it was donated by Herb Bush.
