Anyone Else Collect .22 Rimfire Ammunition?

Just wondering if there's anyone else here who collects older, full boxes of .22 rimfire ammunition. I've been collecting full boxes since the late 50's as a kid.

I collect cartridges, but for the most part I try to stay away from boxes. Simply too fragile and too much worry for me. I do have a number of older boxes, just not .22.

I think all three of those boxes are from the early 1950s.

I have somewhere near 40K rounds of .22 LR in my 'collection'. A lot of the stuff is packed in 550 round Federal bulk packs. Many dated back years ago. Does that count?
