    Entire powder can/ammo boxes collection

    Greetings all. I had to close my gun shop down, and I have quite a collection of old powder tins and ammo boxes. Would like to get rid of it all in one shot. Any suggestions?

    Always a challenge when you have a large amount of stuff and want to sell in one shot. Expect the value total would be pretty hefty and require deep pockets to acquire. I buy and sell stuff but am small taters. If you have a local auction house that does online sales I would say consign to them and let the bidding begin. Typically the auction house get a pretty good percentage but they handle the details from sale to shipping. You get a check at the end and are done with the bunch.

    Pictures would help sell it rapidly.

    Depends on what you mean by "quite a collection." Do you have a list of what and how many? Also, if you're planning to be able to ship it, the costs for that is going to be substantial, too.

    pack a box with whatever fits in it and offer it here for a certain price as a mystery package, repeat as needed till your collection is gone.

    Keep this a discussion on the items in the collection, not offers to buy. That belongs in S&S.

    You can post it all in the swap and sell section with the stipulation of "LOCAL PICK UP ONLY" if you so desire. It's nice to give the Cast Boolits folks a shot first. Best of luck to you!
