I picked this up 2 weeks ago at a shop. I have only ever seen one other crate for .22 LR ammo.
Are these rare and is there much value in them? I'm looking to sell this one to fund a project.

I can provide better pics on requst.
The sides are solid, the bottom has seen better days. But still good for display.

Tyler:

Thanks for posting the pics of your .22LR crate. Neat. I have seen a few of them over the years but many fewer than are seen for the .30-06, .30 Carbine and .45 ACP ammo. The government bought a ton--correction many tons--of .22LR ammo in WW2 for training and marksmanship purposes. This looks like a Remington crate, probably for the R17L dogbone boxes in 500 round cartons.

Regards,
Charlie

When you come up with a price, let me know. I have a good friend who collects .22 Military training rifles and would love to get this for him.

Dan, I will let you know.

Anyone have an idea on value? I haven't seen any forsale online.

Guessing... $45 to $55. Just a guess.
