Default Herter's reloading dies old

Hey folks i picked up some 22/250 dies a a garage sale for a $1.00. Does anyone know anything about them, how old, are they collectable. They appear to be unused with no visible wear marks. I thought they were net and wanted to share. The paper work is still in the box and the original price was $6.29.

Probably '60's or early '70's

Herter's was put out of operation by our anti-gun/anti-business/liberal controlled government about '74, IIRC.

Those dies are as good as others of their type but are "collectable" only in the sense that some people think anything out of production is a "collector" item. But they aren't very valuable, worth the using value; I'd put that around $12-15 in today's market.

On ebay those dies are selling anywhere for $3 to $20 thats probably about the price range you looking if you sell them.

Some Herters stuff is very collectible dies not so much,good find though nice to have a little piece of history form a company that was the forerunner to Bass Pro and Cabelas.

I remember going to their store in Wisconsin. It was huge and had everything you needed in hunting and fishing. They put out a huge catalog almost as big as Sears. Too bad they are still not around.

I have a set of Herter's dies I bought off ebay fairly cheaply in .222 Remington. The only problem I have w/ them is that the seating depth screw on the bullet seater is frozen solid and I can't get it loose. The resizing dies works great so I just use my .223 seating die to seat the bullets in my .222 cases. Works fine. I remember as a kid buying all kinds of stuff from Herters. Like others have said, too bad they went out of business.

I had never heard of them before and just picked them up. To me they were kinda neet an i got them for a $1.00. They r 22/250 dies witch i dont own. They have a herters price tag on them that says $6.29 i thought that was pretty cool. I did go to ebay and look at them not worth a bunch. I'll just put them with my old boxes of ammo and add to my display.
