Here is the similar ammo the CMP is currently selling, Greek manufacture dated between 1962 and 1980, it is good ammo. Comes in sealed spam cans:

It's getting close to $1 per round at gun shows. I miss the good old days and I'm glad I stocked up back then.

It was a Smith Corona I believe. I don't know the details but I know where it went.

I have a sealed, unopened can of the elusive AP ammo. Would like to unload it, not sure of the value.

It's winchester ammo, if the date checks out as non corrosive that's a plus.

USGI surplus always sells for more than greek.

The big thing to check is the manufacturers codes on the enblocs. Some USGI enblocks are worth more to collectors...
