    Vintage Box of CCI #550 Primers

    Found these at a local estate sale last week. Original price sticker $1.39. I'm thinking the 70's? What do you think?

    Yeah, that's only 80's. I've got some from the early 90's priced only about .80 cents more.

    Yep.....
    “You should tell someone what you know. There should be a history, so that men can learn from it.

    He smiled. “Men do not learn from history. Each generation believes itself brighter than the last, each believes it can survive the mistakes of the older ones. Each discovers each old thing and they throw up their hands and say ‘See! Look what I have found! Look upon what I know!’ And each believes it is something new.
