This may require further inspection and research by the collector to determine just what you have.
A shotgun shell is a self-contained cartridge typically loaded with multiple metallic "shot", which are small, generally spherical projectiles.
Nomenclature of shotshell boxes is simple and widely agreed upon.
The first major distinction is between two piece and one piece boxes.
: Prior to World War Two some 42 companies had manufactured shotshells-not at the same times. : Prior to the Great Depression (roughly) many commercial loaders, especially in the three flyways, bought empties from United States Cartridge Company, Union Metallic Cartridge Company, Winchester Repeating Arms Company or other sources and loaded and packaged them with their own house brand labels.
Some of the companies ceasing operation before 1941 included Robin Hood, Union Metallic Cartridge Company (UMC), and U. Lead shot companies, hardware distributors, gun shops, and other companies shared much of the shotshell market. Appreciate that rarity, that is how few were produced/have survived, and condition are paramount.
Now, these long, obsolete shells make great collectors items that can increase in price and become a small investment.
These old shotshells call to us of another era when our forefathers hunted.
Propellants have gone from black powder to smokeless, which helped hunters keep an eye on targeted game after the shot rather than through a smoke screen.
They are in great shape for being 30 years old and went unopened up until the last year or so when the guy I purchased them from wanted to "see what type of shape they were in".
