    How vintage is it? I have seen boxes of some older 22 ammo protected by plastic wrap and for sale at some shows. The Forks show coming up at Allentown is one of those. There is a cartridge collectors show held each year not too far from you where these would also be of interest.

    This year I seem to remember it was at the Reinholds fire hall. See this post: http://forum.pafoa.org/showthread.php?t=349302
    May want to PM that OP as he is apparently part of the organization and can tell you more.

    The keywords to make those rounds more valuable is to add the words "Rare, Collector and Vintage" in any order and don't forget to add "as seen on American Pickers".
    The path that leads to truth is littered with the bodies of the ignorant

    Yes and yes, you're probably more competent and reliable than any of the younger workers out there today.
    I know where Hunter's been.

    Age and condition are everything. Boxes not torn , worn , written on or sticky tags bring top dollar. Cartridges not corroded.

    Some guys just want the same boxes they had as a kid.

    I don't know about vintage and collectible, but definitely rare and one of a kind!
