Default Any Cartridge Collectors Here?

My dad was a cartridge and shot shell collector for many years. He sold off most of his shot shells, but I inherited his cartridge collection upon his passing a couple of months ago.
I'm not sure what he has, or what it's worth. It's about a 1000 pieces. He used to say most of it was common that any good collector would have already, with a few good rare pieces.
Any help would be appreciated.
Will post a few pics later.

i believe C3shooter collects cartridges as well and has some really off the wall oddballs as well as some very obsolete cartridges. maybe he will step into this thread.

welcome to the forum and stop over in the introductions section and say hello to the gang.

I am a collector, but not at the same level as many. Most of mine are commercially avaiable calibers with a few rare ones thrown in. I cannot discuss the centerpiece, but a dummy 40mm linked round for the Helo nose gun is pretty close.

What are your plans for it Caveman? You going to keep it or sell it off? That would be neat to display somewhere.

That is the question Viking.
It's difficult to display.
If I try to sell it I think I would be left with a bunch of the common stuff after the rest is cherry picked. So it would need to be sold in one lot, but how to price that?
I'm just looking for ideas and or offers…
