    I don't think they are worth much of anything. I have a few scattered around here and there that I keep as collectibles, but I don't think they have any significant monetary value.

    the only thing that they are worth are your time if you shoot them. They'll dirty up your bore like a shot shell full of leaves. i know that there are people that collect the old boxes but even then they may pay a buck or two for them.

    I have a handful of paper .410 shells, but I don't think I'll try them if they are dirty.

    Where's your sense of adventure Pinecone? And think of all the time you'll have to bond with your 410 while cleaning the nasties out of it.

    Paper shells aren't dirty because of the paper. It is the powder they used in those days. It just takes a wipe down and you are back to clean 'n' shiny.

    I used to use those in the early 80's to shoot trap. I also used to get a reload or two out of them. I never noticed them to be real dirty. They were Winchester super x. Sort if a burgundy color.
