I recently came upon an old, old box of Winchester 32 Cal Rifle ammo.  It’s a paper-looking box with a green label on top.  There are about 30 of the rounds in the box and maybe a half-dozen empty brass casings.  I’d be looking to sell it, but I’m unsure what the proper venue is (I can’t imagine one posts ammo on Ebay).  And since this is a Swap Meet forum, I thought I’d see what people here recommend.

I tried to attach a picture of the box but I’m not bright enough to figure out the picture-attach button up above this text so I’m attaching a pic I “borrowed” off the web.  This is pretty close but there are some little differences like where it says “Center Fire” to the left of the cartridge in this picture.  On mine it says “Central Fire” and the words are rounded.  But mine is pretty close to this.

Anyway, I appreciate any thoughts on where to sell it and for how much (or how to attach my own picture!).

Be well

You can’t post pictures directly on this site unless your a paid member. You have to upload the picture to a third party host site and then post the link to it like you did in your post. Value of  a original Winchester ammo box depends on it condition so pictures are a must. You can email the pictures to me at the below address and I can post them.

Thank you for reaching out and helping this noob out.  I really appreciate it.  I’ll pop you a pic that I have on hand and will dig out the box shortly to take a pic of the interior/contents.

Again, many thanks

Here is the picture. You need to show more pictures of the condition of the shells and the box. If there is any tears in any sides or its been taped or glued will affect value as well as the condition of the shells. From the one picture the box looks good.

Thank you Bob – I’ll send more pics as soon as I dig out the box again.

Also, after my original post I poked around this site more.  It’s a great community you have here, and it does seem like the proper venue for posting these questions.  Thanks for letting me lurk!

This box is post 1900 and is not the same as the one Bob posted below.  The one Bob posted for you is antique and is worth more.   A sealed box in this condition is worth about $200 to $250.
