Default SW branded 9mm 115 FMC in the box. Worth anything?

My local pawn shop has several boxes of SW 9mm ammo, Selling it just because 9mm is hard to find,
Does it have any collector value?, The brass is tarnished but the boxes are in goo shape.


Looks like this (this is not an active listing)

It's fairly common and the boxes are shopworn. I wouldn't give them much of a premium over new ammunition price.

I don't want them, just curious as you know how people collect anything and everything!

As usual, DWalt is right on target. I see these at auction frequently and they only command a very slight premium over current prices when the box and ammo are pristine.
They do look nice when photographed with an early S&W 9mm.

Could you up the price if the boxes had the older divided cardboard sections, to keep the ammo in place?

I know that the foam containers are of newer construction.

Thanks for any input.

Funny, I have never seen Smith and Wesson ammo of any caliber with a cardboard divider.

Do you have any photos?

Not that it really matters, but the boxes I saw are "minty" compared to that old photo I snagged off the net.
Heck they are priced at $22 dollars due to the lack of any ammo around here which is nuts anyway.

Per post #6;

Today I only have a few old rifle boxes left, that have the cardboard shell case, separators.

In these modern times, plastic and foam have taken over, since I guess it cost less?

I am not a collector and when my ammo boxes get to where they loose the end tabs and duct tape etc. does not hold them together for my use, I toss them.
The last old box was that I tossed, was a red & green Remington box of .22 shorts, that was held together with black electrical tape.

My old Winchester "Yellow Boxes" are getting pretty old now, also.

I have several boxes of 357. The cartridges are in a white or light gray Styrofoam holder. The only reason I have any left is it kept locking up the cylinder of my 4" Python when I fired it so I stopped using it.

I think with no ammo around that`s not a bad price . I do pick up the Smith ammo when I see it I have 9, 38, 22 LR.

Don't you know that you are not supposed to fire S&W ammunition in a Colt revolver?

Sorry, just to be clear... I thought you had seen "Smith and Wesson" boxes with cardboard dividers.

I was under the impression that S&W ammo came onto the market too late for that type of packaging.

About 10 years or so ago I was reaching one of my peaks in 32 cal interest. At an OGCA show I found one of these S&W boxes of 32 S&W (short) ammo at about the same price similar ammo of any brand would bring. I got it just to go with my S&W revolvers of that same vintage and have been looking (unsuccessfully) for the same thing in 32 Long. It seems like 9 mm, 38 & 357, and perhaps 44 or even 45 (ACP) are fairly common and attract little or no collector interest, but “odd” calibers are harder to come by. Just my experience, YMMV.

Only shootable 357 I had at the time. I did have a 27 in the presentation case but I didn't have the heart. I didn't know they were so fragile at the time.

Know it's something different for the young folks.
This was commonly seen ammo in the 70's and 80's.
Made by Alcan/Fiocchi for S&W, IIRC.
