    An acquaintance of mine is nagging to buy these old .22s from me but wants me to set the price. Anybody know fair value? 13 boxes, all full and correct as far as I know.

    Thanks in advance.

    -Gary

    If he is letting you set the price you will not go wrong with $5.00 a box. They are collectable.

    Very cool collection Gary. Did you save them yourself over the years?

    Just bought some at large gun auction. Gave $60 for 16 boxes of which 8 were full and 12 were collectible. If you don't want them I will buy them.

    No Matt, I got them as a "deal sweetener" while doing a little gun trading.

    I do believe I remember shooting some of those Western XPERTS back in the 70s. Does anybody know the vintage of the others? I suspect that those dogbone Kleanbores might be from the 60s.

    I know there was someone at the Grand in the vendor buildings that had all sorts of this type stuff. Some was very resonable and some were priced high(to me anyway). Its very cool stuff. I think its one of those deals if the guy needs it really bad for his collection, its pricless. The ones you have pre date my shooting years for sure.

    I wish i had invested my money in this sort of thing instead of the years and dollars i spent on sports collectables that are now worth nothing.

    Jeez, Matt -- now you're making me want to keep them, LOL.

    I probably should, because half the stuff I've sold over the years I wish I still had!

    Hunted wild pigeons with my grandfather in the late 50s and early 60s. We used .22s and Xpert and SuperX. Chichay

    Well Gary, they say you can't take it all with you but you can sure enjoy it while your here. You will have to make that call whether to sell or not. I have no idea of its value but they are rich in the cool market. I like you have sold a many a item i wish i still had. I'm sure i'll sell something else i regret in the near future. Seems i never learn from my own mistakes. LOL

    Your ammo is worth around $130.00. Your best box is the Palma. Some variations of Palma can get expensive. The Kleanbore longs 10.00 to 15.00. The dog bones and the Kleanbores are around 1940s vintage. Boxes with child warning are post 62.

    If you any of you like vintage 22 ammo let me know I will see if I can send you pictures of my 22 ammo collection.

    Top right was mid-late 50's, with early - mid 60s next one down. You will note 3 of the WW has the libby child warning so those were certainly the newest. I would sure hang on to the Palma Rems and Win Match ones! Not sure about the others! Tom Rhoads

    Really, some of mine are from the 40s? Wow, I had no idea. Now I definitely want to keep them. Maybe I'll buy even more when I come across them!

    ... and the spindly fingers of yet another hobby begin to clench around my throat, LOL.

    Good choice Gary. From what whiz-bang and others posted, your small collection should do nothing but increase in value. Famous last words................

    I saw one of those dog bone Remington boxes going for $20 at a gun show, never have see the Plama match variety. The new Wincheter boxes are more like $5. I would think the lot is easily worth the $130 mentioned above.

    As it turns out, there are a bunch of guys that like to collect these things .... I can't seem to pass them up.

    Amazing. And all the times I've gone to gun shows I've wasted my time looking for guns, LOL!

    Thanks again for all the info & comments. I'm certainly glad I asked.

    curiosity, I was wondering if you are talking about the value of the box only, or the box with the ammunition in it....
