    Who had the comm. shells for 2005 the last year in Ohio and 2006 the first year in Sparta? Were the shells and/or the boxes marked and how?

    I collect comm. shells and boxes in particular. Several of you replied and I thank you but were the boxes marked? This years NRA box is a poor excuse for a comm. box. Looking forward to hearing some from you on the boxes. Anyone have any 2005 & 2006 for sale?

    I have a box of AA's that say Vandalia Ohio, 2005 Grand American on the hulls and the box has 40th Anniversary on it, I also have a box of STS's where the hulls have the ATA crest and say Sparta IL. 2006 Grand American and one other box of AA's that say 100th Anniversary, Grand American on the hulls. The boxes say nothing. Maybe in a few years they'll be worth something.

    I have Grand American commerative hulls for several years. 2002 to 2005 for sure, maybe more. Some are AA and some are STS. Also have some from the 100th Grand. They are in boxes of 200 with boxes, but the boxes do not have any special marking. Let me know if interested.

    I have a case of the 100th. anniv. I'm kind of looking for 2005 and 2006 ATA shells and boxes in new condition.

    JMBI: I have a tin box that says 40th. Anniv. AA but no contents and no mention of ATA on the box.

    This leads to another question since it's olympics time. Has or are there such a thing as Olympic commerative shells and boxes?

    I have a box of Federal plastic commemorative shells from the 1976 Grand. These were the deep, almost transparent, deep burgandy shells with a gold cracked liberty bell and the dates 1776 and 1976 also in bright gold. Also have various shells from any and all of the following Grands that had any comm. shells, 1976 thru 2007.
