Good afternoon, How old do you think that the box may be?Jim
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Probably at least 50 years
Expert:  ProShooter replied 8 months ago.
Ok, thank you. .25-35 Winchester is still made today, and generally runs about $50 for a box of 20 rounds. In terms of age, 50 years is not terribly old. 75-100 years would be better. If the ammo is still serviceable to be used, I'd say that you could get $40 to $50 for a box of 20 rounds. If the box is in really nice shape, and decorative, you may be able to get a bit more, like $60-$75 to a collector who wants the box to display.Anything else?
Expert:  ProShooter replied 8 months ago.
Its really the old stuff that most collectors want.
Expert:  ProShooter replied 8 months ago.
You could take some photos of it and post the box for sale on www.gunbroker.com to see if there's any interest.Jim
