7.62 NATO Match Ammo

I have several boxes of 7.62 mm NATO Match Ammo manufactured in 1966. The following info is on each box:
-20 cartridges
-7.62 MM NATO
-M 118
-Lot LC 12053
-Match
-Bullet 173 Grains
-Velocity 2550 Fps.
I would like to know if these are collectibles, and what is their value ?

THanks

Anything is collectible.

But an early lot of M118 like that should interest collectors. 1966 would represent a second year production, as M118 was officially adopted in 1965.

If the carton is in good condition that will raise the potential value.

I think you'll get more specific answers if you poke around cartridgecollectors.org

Hope this helps,
Jimro

Don't listen to Jimro, those are junk.

Send them to me and I'll dispose of them for you...

I've got a box of those, and see them at the shows, minty condition, full boxes, for around $20 each, sometimes less, often more, up to maybe $35 range.
