I was rooting through our storage unit and found a full box of paper .410 shells that a widow gave me when I bought her husband’s Stevens 22-410. Maybe back in the late 90’s. Any idea when they were manufactured &/or collector value?

were pictured in the catalogs through 1962. They began being phased out as the plastic shells came in starting in 1961 in 12-gauge. By the 1963 catalog only the 28-gauge and .410-bore Remington Express remained in paper. By 1965, the .410-bore shells were in plastic hulls.

Thanks. Think I’ll keep them for nostalgia reasons. The widow thought her husband bought the shells in the 50’s when he bought the Stevens 22-410. He kept the gun in a canvas carrier that looked like it was for an M1 carbine. Maybe I’ll see if I can find it and post a pic.
