This guy won't sell me any. What is this Country coming to when cash is no good. :) I imagine he found it sitting in a police locker for 60 to 100 years.

Hi,

 

Looks like we are not the only ones that keep an adequate amount of ammo on hand.  This was just misplaced a bit longer than mine :)

 

All kidding aside, looks great.  If it could only talk.

 

Enjoy,

Based on the labeling, can anyone narrow down the decade these were made?

 

Don't know much about history....

Here's a box that date's (July - 8th - 1918) looks the same but I think the color has faded on mine.

He is not a shooter but a passionate and knowledgeable collector. He wants them for himself and in my opinion, he's right. Better that beach front real estate. I tried to make an offer and he said no. I have a ton of stuff that I plan to die with. I'm going to stay in touch and ask once a year. :)
