Ive got a really nice original leather 1911 holster from world war 2. It is in very nice original condition, leather is pliable. I also have 2 original 50rd boxes of WW2 era 45acp. Both boxes produced by Federal Cartridge Corporation. One box is marked Ball, and the other is actually ball "match"! I also have 2 original unopened 50rd boxes of "Western X" 45acp. Last but not least is another rare 50rd box of Lake City High Velocity 38 special ball....Ive never seen this before! Prices are as follows, WW2 1911 holster=$SPF, WW2 .45 ball ammunition $25, .45 ball "match"=35, .45 "western" =$22, LC 38 special high velocity=$30. Local sale prefered for ammuntion, If you want to pick it all up, Ill sell the whole lot for $115!

The 'Lake City' 38 is the plant owned by ATK in Independence, MO. ATK is the parent owner of a metric boatload of things, including familiars like CCI/Speer/Lawman, Federal Premium and RCBS reloading gear. Most likely they were the contract provider for the government and this is (was?) bulk ammo never intended for consumer sale, so no branding.

Thanks for the info on the Lake City 38 special. Ive seen tons of LC 308,5.56, etc but never seen an original box of this ammo. Just out of curiosity, are my prices out of line on any of this ammo? I love having period "display" ammo to go with any of my vintage firearms, how could you not have a box of original WW2 era ammo to go with your original 1911,lol? I really have no clue what this ammo is worth, so please let me know if im off-base here. Thanks!
