Vintage Collection Powder, Boxes, Ammo, Etc

Hello. Got all this stuff from an estate. Knowing there is a collector following for most everything, I am wondering if these items are of value. If so, would I be better off selling it as a lot? Appreciate any opinions. Thanks

A few of the items have some collector value.

It's a pity that the box of Remington 5-in-1 blanks is in such rough shape. That would be quite spendy if it were full and in good condition.

The box of Peters .30-30 ammo is quite nice.

There doesn't appear to be anything earth shattering there.

That box of Wandas might have some value to a collector. IIRC not much of that stuff came into the country.

The blanks have 32 unfired rounds
The Peters have 16 unfired rounds
The Wanda box is almost full
The CCI Large primers have about 600 still there

The blanks probably go for between $1 and $1.50 each, retail.

Were the box in good condition and full, you'd be looking at closer to $100 to $150, I'd say.

The .30-30 ammo by itself isn't worth anything, really. Really common. The value in that one is in the box, and I'd say retail for that is probably... $15 to $30.

The CCI primers? Use them. They're worth more as functional objects than collectors items. The box? Couple of bucks, maybe.

I'm still loading older primers that pictured ( saving the boxes though ) back when they said Cascade... also loading ( or at least storing ) a couple powders of that age as well

most of the stuff doesn't fall into the highly collectable areas or ages ( old picture shot gun boxes can get there pretty fast, for example )

I have some empty but pristine primed Remington cases boxes, in the era of the older of your cartridge boxes priced at a couple bucks, & they might have went at last years gun show ( I get a table at 1 local gun show a year to get rid of odds & ends ), but I think I tabled them a couple years before they went... cartridge boxes are more collectable than the primed cases boxes... butt
