    nothing really. Well not anymore than a regular shotshell from walmart would be worth.

    Federal paper is the trap shooter's choice. For some reason that hull produces a very low recoil pulse and the trap shooters dig it. Kind of a pain to handload though.......

    to include some other info..on that paperless shell..there is no brass on this shell..
    does anyone know why there wasn't any brass on this shell..was it because of the war yrs?

    hold on by chance do you mean a cellulite hull instead of brass or re-enforced hardened with glue and pressed cardboard those could be worth $5 each

    the complete shell is all paper, except the firing pin..it does not look like your picture..it is all smooth,not corrugated..no brass at all.

    Tshirt you may have a collectable i doubt you'll get rich of it the one above is a expencive one and was $30 to the collector but maybe someone saw him coming ;) or he wanted it badly

    if you have a pic i can run it by some friends who are experts but until then i'm sorta lost

    but good luck to you

    hi..my nephew has the collection, but will try to get it from him and take a picture..my Dad, at one time, had 2, but there was a man from nebraska who wrote a shotgun shell book, so he traded him one for the book..
    talk soon..
