Gentlemen,YOU are Correct a 50 cal Maynard....1865 if memory serves me correctly....the large brass rim was soldered to the cylinder case,and was this was great in holding in all the gases,also one of the first reloadable cartridges....It's worth about ~$40.00 .

Dr Maynard was a renowed dentist ,who dabbled in firearms,he sold his patents,to companies,he was a man before his time...(or just in time).

I have several different sample of his cartridges in my collection !
