Approximate value of box for THV .45 rounds?


#1

Could you guys be kind enough to let me know what you feel the value of a pristine condition box for .45 THV rounds would be?

Thanks!

Values are very subjective on things like this box since it is a bit rare. If you put it up for auction and it had lots of exposure you might find find that 2 or 3 people would “have to have it” and bid up beyond its reasonable value, but you never know. I would put the value of each cartridge at $15.00 or $20.00 if they were being sold individually, and so the box total value is probably around $300.00 to $400.00 (or a little more?). The weird thing is that you sometimes see a box like this being sold for $100 to $200 or something like that, which still sounds high to some people who might not be familiar with them, but that’s a bargain. I like the box for being a non-typical THV box though, it’s just a factory SFM box that’s had a THV stamp put on it, which I haven’t seen before.

Thanks for posting it.

Are those two boxes different boxes, or is one picture very distorted? They are completely different shapes. I know the square box is right, as received pictures of it before, including open showing a 25-round capacity. The top box appears to be an old Gevelot 50-round box pasted up for SFM THV rounds.

Rich, please let us know. It does not appear that they both could be of the same box.

John, the first photo is the side of the box and the second photo is the top of the box (right side of the box you can see the thumb cut-out for ease of opening).

The photos are of the same box. I simply wanted to show different sides.

Rich - Thanks - I can see that now. It was the scale of the two boxes
that threw me off - what we jokingly call an “optical conclusion.”
