Remember These ?

This is kinda shooting related. I was doing a little pre-spring cleaning and ran across the following items. I'm sure there are many who will have personal first hand knowledge. These items probably came from the mid to late 60's. Not that old compared to the origins of trapshooting - but still approaching 50 years old I think. Anyone have other "treasures" like this they use for decoration or just taking up space on an out of the way shelf ?

Sure do. That same MARK 5 box of XPERT shells sat in the kitchen cupboard for my entire childhood. ...right next to Dad's Rem 760 magazine full of 30-06, and Mom's tin of Paprika, LOL.

Let's take the nostalgia one step further. Does anyone remember loading Winchester paper shells and "ironing" them. Used to put each shell on a vertical "curling iron" after depriming them and before inserting the two piece fiber wad. If you left the shell too long on the iron it would melt all of the wax off of the shell.
