Value of GI .30 carbine ball - RA54

Hey guys,

I have some 1954 vintage RA .30 carbine ball, it is on strippers that have built in spoons that slide on the strip clip to a stop before puting it on the mag (each stripper has this built in spoon, rather ingenious), this ammo is in the original bandoleers and cardboard inserts.

So, given the current climate and taking into account that this is vintage ammo with rather unique stripper clips, what would 470 rounds be worth? The ammo has some minor tarnish on some cases but is otherwise shiny and the bando's are crisp, it is in a can that was opened so has some dust from sitting.

Thanks

Jeff

The best way to find out what the value of your ammo would be is go to one of the auction sites and see what the "sold" price brings, not the asking or "buy it now". It looks like the 'peak' has passed and prices aren't what they were a couple months ago.

At current prices, the value is at least $300 and possibly higher. That is good GI ammo.
