I recently picked up this vintage American Ballistics display piece. It is very crudely made, with the lettering done by the old “click-tape” adhesive marking tape. It has also been apparently vandalized for certain cartridges.
Being that it takes up so much space, is not complete, and is not well marked, I am tempted to simply salvage the cartridges and sacrifice the remainder. I am hesitant to destroy anything with original historic value however. Can anyone give me an idea of the rarity and value (historic, not $$) of the item? Also, can anyone explain the meanings of the various titles (TC, HXC, etc)? Thanks.
