    My dad gave me these shotgun primers. There are 900 of them and they seem to be in good shape, shiny and clean.

    Should I:

    1. Test a few and use them in practice loads?

    2. Take them to Tulsa and trade them to some collector.

    They're probably fine. I like collecting the old cartridge boxes and power cans. That looks like early to mid 60's right there, similar to alot of my grandfathers' stuff from that time period.

    Larry - I guess they are std 209's - load up some practice rounds with them - all except one pack of 100 - keep those for posterity (whoever he is!).

    HNY! :)
