Title: Market for antique ammo?
Post by: Nate on October 02, 2014, 02:18:32 PM
I recently acquired a bag full of antique 32.20 ammo.  Most of it is stamped Peters with a few Remington and Winchester too. There are 5 cartridges that have HV stamped on the bottom.  I am assuming these 5 are rifle only cartridges.  Is there a market for antique ammo?  Would taking these to a gun show be my best bet for selling them?

32-20 is still being produced, so there would be no more interest than any other old shells.

The ammo loose by itself is usually not collectible. Unless its really rare non produced stuff.
The boxes on the other hand can be collectible, even more so if they are still full of ammo.
