I agree.  These photos show a much better box than first impression.  

Me too…A little stabilization could help.

here are a couple more pictures of the box.

From my limited knowledge of shot shell boxes, I’d put it in the 1931-1935 range, due to the Division of Western Cartridge Co. on the label.

Thanks.  I was thinking that too, based on these new pictures he sent to me. I thought they may have been older but the fact that it says Division of Western Cartridge Co. on the label, changes that. 

Any idea what a fair offer should be?

I honestly don’t know and I’ve seen prices all over the place. What is he asking for them?

In my opinion its in the 125-150 range at most. Actually I’ve seen auction lots go for way less and in better condition and older in age.

@ $125 your at $5 a shell at a full box. I’ve seen older unopened boxes for that at auction. But can honestly say I’ve never tried buying any either. Collector Ammunition has always been odd ball and hard to price in my opinion.

Best of luck in your purchase.

Sincerely,

Maverick

The saw tooth crimped brass shotgun shells were procured just prior to the end of WWI and then again between the Wars.  The subject box was obviously made between the Wars because, as others have noted, the box is labeled “Division of Western Cartridge Co.” and we know Western took over Winchester in 1931.  If the box also had a “US Property” mark on it, it could be worth well in excess of $350.00.

Hi Steve,

No agreed upon price yet. We’re supposed to meet up at some point to talk in person.  He has other interesting Winchester memorabilia also and wants me to stop over his house.

I’ll let you know how it works out.
