    try a auction search. Try to find a pic or 2 of the box and match it a closely as possible. antiques and such may be a close enough search, but with out seeing the box(more info) I have no idea. Good luck searching.

    Unless it is really rare & unique , it probably isn't worth much.

    If the box is full AKA no rounds missing & the box itself is in real nice condition then I would hold onto it.

    Also if you DO decide to shoot it then check the primer areas.

    I have a nearly full box of Super Vel .45acp & I noticed some traces of green corrosion growing out from around the primer pocket area.
    I decided not to shoot mine because of that. Mine might be unsafe.

    LOL - Somebody is selling a partially full box of Super Vel in 9mm on Gunbroker.
    He is asking $20 for it and it looks like a leopard chewed on the box for a half hour.
