Want to Trade Boxes for Autopistol Boxes that Interest Me

Boxes for Trade!

As most of you know I collect 9mm Parabellum/Luger boxes, and currently have about 3000. There are still many boxes I am interested in. I am less interested in current commercial boxes and more interested in older boxes, particularly pre-WWII. One of my top Wants is a US made commercial 25 round box from before WWII. I have seen the picture of such a Winchester box, and it is possible the other pre-WWII US makers could also have made these boxes. Most did make them in other calibers. Early USCCO and very early Western Target boxes are of interest. A USCCO box with the New York address would be of interest. Winchester blue box with Red “STAYNLESS” instead of ‘NON-MERCURIC” over “STAYNLESS”

I also am interested in early boxes (pre-1950) in other autopistol calibers. Generally, I am not interested in US manufacturers unless there is something special. My prime interest is in 9mm Browning Long, 30 Luger, 9mm Steyr, 9mm Mauser, 7.63mm Mauser (including UMC) and other autopistol calibers if they are particularly interesting.

Below are the boxes I have available for trade. I will added to this list periodically and delete things as they are traded.
