Default Questions about early 32-44 S&W target box

Hello everyone:
About 12 years ago I bought this sealed box together with a 32-44 target new model #3.
I have not been able to find a similar example online.
Are they rare?
What is the approximate value of a box like this one?
Thank you!

I would not break that seal, if I had that box of ammo.

It would be a "look but don't touch" in my house.

I have no intentions of opening it. Just curious why there is no other box like it that I can find...

Cause it all got shot. It wasn't a collectors item back then.

I understand the reasoning, but one can still find pre-1900 ammo for variety of pistols and rifles. I just thought it strange that I could not find pictures or references of another box like mine anywhere..

A partial opened box (35 cartridges), just like the one you have, recently sold for $105 on an auction site.
