So what are M1 Garand en bloc clips worth?

Dad found a bunch in the place he bought in Florida and gave it all to me along with some other stuff.

No Garand, no desire to have a Garand (any time soon), and no use for these so better off with them in the hands of someone that will use and appreciate them.

Look like standard 8 round clips to me. Anything I should look at to differentiate them or is an en bloc clip just an en bloc clip?

They aren't rare, as far as I know. I just get mine from the ammo cans I buy from the CMP, 196 rounds, 24 or so clips.

some can be worth more than others, markings and clip latch slot configuration is the determining factor.

they sell for as much as a $1 each at gun shows. You could probably get rid of them for around .75 easily.....

Like the above poster said...depends on the markings.

I know people that just collect 1911 mags....not the gun, don't even own the gun, they just have the one part....there are people that collect anything.

Do a little research you may find out something that will make them cool to you.

They're worth what someone will pay. For shooters I've seen them go for .50 up to 2.00 lately. I'd probably pay up to a buck for good ones, but no more than that. But I'm cheap. :)

Collectors/rare versions I have no idea.

+1. Just a few year ago, you could get them for $.50 each, and I stocked up. Now, the going price for ones in decent shape is about $2.00 each.

Values not given, but try Google-Fu on wolfies M1 clip collection or wolfsrus/clips/clips.html

If I had a WW2 Garand of historical or personal significance, I'd try real hard to find historically correct gear. Otherwise, they seem to be offered at about 1.00 each for examples that aren't covered with rust.

The Civilian Marksmanship Program web site/Forum might be a good place to broaden your search.

They can be bought new at this site for $1.50 each so I would think $1.00 or so for used ones would be fare.

You can easily sell used good condition USGI enblocs for $1.50 each. I sold a bunch receintly for $2 each

I bought a hundred for .20 several years ago.
I might be in the market if the price is right and they are in good condition.

A Buck to a Buck fifty is average retail price.
Wholesale offer is usually 50 to 75 cents each in useable condition.

The French ones or some that come with the Greek ammo can be junk. Good ones are worth a dollar or two. Most Garand shooters have a lifetime supply.

Clips from war2 and Korean war can be more, there are tons of HXP en bloc's around at .50-1.00 each. I give them away to new Garand shooters. That little cartouche on the back makes all the difference.

The en-block clips seem to be marked with a "headstamp", which will help ID details of the units you have.

The clips were expertly appraised at 11 for $13. Shipped
