If you come up or find a good price you are happy with I would be able to buy the whole collection.

Not sure where to start. Dad was the expert. Those pix were about half the collection, 10 more drawers. Is it worth $1 a round?

I'm by no means an expert, but you could get a good bit over a dollar for some of that stuff. The common stuff, probably best to keep it at a dollar, bu the discontinued or rarer stuff I'd charge a little more.

Most collections I am aware of are worth more if you piece them out, unless it is a comprehensive and complete set of something. A hodge-podge of items, like ammunition, probably could not fit in this category since there are so many obscure rounds, some of which I'm sure only a handful were ever made.

You could probably piece it out and make more on it, but that would be tedious and take forever and in the end you would be left with a number of cartridges that might not be worth anything, but you don't want to throw away.

I would sell it as a lot if I were you.

Completely agree Viking... I won't piece it out, but not sure how to price the lot.
I know there are some rare, with much common. That's why I thought to average it out at so much per round... Just don't know what that number is.

Sorry, I guess I overstepped looking for help / offers on this collection until I post at least 25 times.
Didn't mean to break any rules, but I'm not very verbose, so it may be a bit before I hit 25...
I guess we'll talk about it again later.

Ever seen Hossfly's posts? You don't have to be verbose.

Perhaps I'll just post a couple more pix to help add to my count...
