    Seen a Winchester cartridge and bullet display board today. It is a double W and was from 1897. Was in good condition. Anyone have idea of value? Guessing about 50 inches wide by 40 inches high. Looked on other websites and some were sold with no price shown. Just curious what its value is. Thanks Paul

    They are nice displays. The value depends on if it is an original (very rare) or a reproduction (very common). The reproductions vary a great deal in quality and value.

    There were several styles of these boards. A friend who was recreating a board paid $6,500 for an ammo collection just to get a rare buffalo hunter's shell. (He parted out the collection and finally sold the other items for over $10,000. Considering the time he spent on the project he got about 75 cents an hour for his labor.)

    Wow, some of the original displays were awesome. 1897 wouldn't provide many of the favorite winchester cartridges, but would be of historical significance I'd imagine. Contact the NRA museum about the value on something like that..

    Thanks to all replys. Will have to take another trip and look at the board a little closer. I do know that it was supposedly issued to the store in 1897 and its production # is 1021. Thanks again Paul
