I picked up a box of twenty five Climax 12 gauge shells at an estate auction last night. The box is in very poor condition but the 25 shells are in perfect condition. The casings are black paper, the headstamp states; No. 12, U.S., Climax, the wad/packing states; Dupont 3 1/4, 1 1/8-4, USCCO.

My question is, how can I find the date of manufacture, are they of any collector value even though the box is in very, very poor condition.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Keep watching the Wards Auctions and see what something similar sells for --

"Collectors" really go for high condition boxes with pretty graphics.

Thanks for the reply, I'll do that. The box was taped shut with masking tape and is garbage, but the shells are in excellent condition. I also picked up hardly used 1956 Savage/Stevens model 311.
