Went to ny LGS today and she had boxes of shotgun shells out on a table. Asked if any of these was for sale, all of them she said. So I picked up these two.
824610


The box to the right is some paper shell ones, sold by Western Auto Supply from the 60's. The box to the left is from the 80's #2 shot!

One of my Uncles got me started collecting boxes and shells when I was a kid. First box he gave me was a Western Cartridge blue box like you have in the pic. Now I have a few boxes similar to the Western one! Made by Olin! Olin founded Western Cartridges in the late 1800's and if I recall correctly, Western Cartridge became the company that bought out Winchester when they first went belly up in the early 1930's. Eventually the two companies were merged forming the Winchester - Western company. Nice Western "blue" boxes and he later Super X Western "yellow" boxes are pretty neat and collectable! Great find @cajun56 !!
