This might not be the right forum, but what would 98 once fired Bell 50-70 brass be worth? Thanks

One manufacturer charges $43 for 20 new lathe turned brass cases.

100 new Starline .50-70 brass cases sell for $114.99, and 20 sells for $29.49, both at Midway:

While I haven't a clue as to what it's true value is, for practical purposes it's worth whatever price it can fetch on the open market. That can depend on the venue where it's sold, the condition of the cases, what other sources are charging and how quickly that a person wants to sell it.

I guess that it's possible that it could be worth somewhere around $65 - $75, but that's only a guess.
How many times can .50-70 cases be reloaded? :)
