    Just some old 16 ga shotgun that from the looks of the patina on the brass should be shot soon...
    Worth about $5 to 7 bucks.

    Shoot the ammo up, then list the empty box for $10.00 on the auction side. Does it have a "Keep away from children" warning on the box????

    I say keep it. It might make for a good conversation piece, having the H&H name on it.
    An unarmed man can only flee from evil, and evil is not overcome by fleeing from it.

    Yes it is worth more full, but I hate to say this, empty ammo boxes sell
    for top dollar on some other site that doesn't allow sale of ammo. [V]

    Clean up the brass and keep dry.

    Are they 65 mm ?

    Certainly shootable, but probably worth more to double gunners just for snob appeal.

    Circa 1970's ?

    they appear to be plastic cases, so they are not that old, the first plastic shotgun shells were introduced by Remington in 1960ad

    Relatively low pressure, 2 9/16, great for a vintage gun.

    Might not cycle an autoloader, I still say put them up or sell at good (high) price to shotgun snob.

    Those shells should sell well to a person who has one of the old German Drillings. Most of them are 16 ga and chambered for the 2 9/16 shells.
