.38 s&w


#1

I found this box of .380 S&W in my over-stock. Is there any collector value to it? Is it shootable?



#2

Jon–Considering that the box dates from 1920-1925, it is in remarkably good condition. I would say it has quite a premium value just on condition alone.


#3

Any ballpark idea? As shooting ammo it’s worth $15-20.


#4

Jon–I have no idea of its actual value. I don’t collect boxes. Definitely, it is worth well over the value of shooting stock.


#5

Guess I won’t shoot it up, thanks.

Step 2…Find rich buyer.


#6

The condition of the box is amazing; add to that the odd dimensions and I’d be concerned that it might not be an original. Did you change the width of the image?


#7

Hah, I doubt I changed anything, I’m barely capable of turning the camera on! If any width was changed it was purely by accident. Do you want to see any different views?


#8

If it dates from 1925 its not likely to be all that good for shooting anymore. You are likely to get hang fires. Looks like its plan “B”, find a rich collector.


#9

Anyone sold something similar and can give me a ballpark value?
