Old empty shotgun shells

A friend of mine just cleaned out an old house which had a lot of old reloading stuff in it. I believe that some of this material might be useable. the old hulls were stored in trash cans an look good, I would classify them as once fired. My question is that they could be 30 years old, would this make them unsafe in anyway ? I assume the bag lead would probably be worth more as a novelty. He also has several cigar boxes of old rifle & pistol brass marked sized an deprimed around 1968. Is this old brass dangerous to reload or is it in the novelty department also ? I am sure part of your response will suggest visual inspection. I guess the question is does the age alone disqualify the materials from use ? Thanks for the help.
