Jon, if I had wanted to bid on this one I wouldn't have started a thread to attract attention to it. wink

Actually, I'm waiting on an unopened case of them.....

In the May 2020 Ward's Auction a similar box sold for $20496. I didn't record if it was full, partial or empty.

There are several interesting shotguns in this auction. Problem is I say that about every auction these days. Can not figure out if it is true or just that so many things interest me these days. Been wearing our GunBroker lately so might give them a rest and see about a couple on this auction. So many great guns, so little time and even less money for them all. Stan I know you know how to keep a secret when you are interested in bidding on something.

I don't collect expensive shell boxes, but I love Ward's auction.

Hank Williams Sr. or "Bosephus"? Jr. Believe I read at one time that Bosephus liked Westley Richards drop-locks, and shot quail and dove with a Win M21 16 gauge- not too shabby. RWTF

In that case it is a bargain at today's ammo prices! laugh

This box of shells is up to $22,000 with a little over a day left until auction ends.

Anyone want to hazard a guess where it ends up?

Ward's Auction has rapidly ascended in popularity. However, in 2016 it was still very regional and unknown. Here is an email I sent to then about an historically important gun they auctioned in 2016.....no reply....zero.

Going through old mail a friend said he traveled to view an Reilly SxS pin-fire in Feb 2016. He said the serial number was 10344. Per my chart this gun would have been numbered in mid-1857 and is one of the earliest existing Reilly center-break guns. I'm wonder if by chance you have retain any details on this gun (for historical purposes). Address on the rib? Any photos of the original case that went with it? Many thanks for any help you can give.
