    I came across a partial box of .22 ammo a few days ago. (Long story how I got it another time.) It is a box of Sears ammo, under the Ted Williams label.

    I was wondering how old it might be, and if it might be worth something to someone that collects old bullets (not trying to sell them, I would give them away.

    That box says, "Copper-plated bullets", but the bullet you show is unplated lead. Also, the bullet you show has a diamond headstamp, which is Western Cartridge Company, and I'm pretty sure Sears ammo was made by Federal.

    I don't know anything about it. That is what was in the box. There are about 10 or 12, some with the diamond, some with "S".

    That comes from goin' to shoot and stickin' the shells in your pocket, and then when you get home you find you have three or four left, and you stick them in a box so they don't get lost. I've got a MiniMag box around here, somewhere, that has about seven different brands in it. None of them CCI.:D

    I took all of the partial boxes that I couldn't remember where they came from and the two or three hand fulls of loose 22s and gave them to a trapper friend.

    Those there come from a time when folks thinking and attitude on firearms was different.

    These were considered merely another "normal" household tool; a necessary implement... as it should be.

    those Sears .22s come from that time - As do these - enjoy! :

    Good part of the reason as to why I collect these... an era and mindset that's all but gone... extinguished.
