Check out 'trench art' using your favourite search engine,then check your favourite online auction site using the same words,there are usually several examples on offer. There are so many variables that could affect price some include,type of decoration,type of shell,age -the stamps on the base can sometimes tell age of manufacture of case which is not always the age of the decoration i.e 1895 manufactured cases decorated post 1918- and of course condition. Decorated cases can vary in price from a few pennies to thousands of pounds/dollars so it will pay to do a little research.

They are worth a lot of money because the ivory made from their tusks is crafted into jewelry, and jewelry is a lot of money to buy, especially if it is hand-crafted.

Depending on where the samurai sword was crafted, who it was crafted by, what materials it was made of, and when it was made the worth of the sword varies greatly. It could range anywhere from $20 to over $5,000.

It was seen as a bit of "The Enemy of my Enemy is my Friend". Anything and anyone that could injure, irritate or inconvenience the Unite Kingdom was worth the investment of a few million dollars worth of artillery, shot, shells, musket and gunpowder.

France felt that The Enemy of My Enemy is My Friend. Any damage or inconvenience to the United Kingdom was worth a few million dollars worth of artillery, shot and shells, gunpowder and muskets given to the Continental Army as military assistance.

Is it old? Is it rare? Is it original (not a reproduction?) If the answers are yes, it might be worth something.

it depends if it was mass produced or not. hand crafted stratocasters are very costly

You will have to find someone who specializes in collecting them. Otherwise, they are not worth any more than a regular box of shotgun shells.

Depend on how fancy it is! Plain Jane vases would only be worth 10-20 dollars. Something "over the top" fancy may be worth several hundred dollars.

i've started to collect them -- olive green glassware with horizontal lines across them. they are worth very little. i don't have to spend much to buy them, but they are attractive, so I buy them.

Oh definantly. I think that its definantly better than COD4. They have really improved it, you stell get the UAV (with plane) and the airstrike (with artillery) but instead of chopper you get dogs which are actually quite hard to kill and are more efficiant than the choppaz. And if you get killed by artillery it shows the third person view of the artillery shot. WHICH I THNIK IS AWESOME!

Henry Knox, a book dealer from Boston, had studied artillery tactics and design extensively in his reading and was the most knowledgeable man on the subject in the colonies. Although he had never fired an artillery piece prior to the Revolutionary War he was assigned to command the artillery brigade of the Continental Army by General George Washington. His worth was proven time an time again, most notably in March of 1776 when he deployed all of the artillery he had transported from Fort Ticonderoga on Dorchester Heights, overlooking Boston. This action resulted in the British evacuation of Boston.

A 16 gauge Iver Johnson Champion is worth fifty dollars--sixty if you throw in a box of shells worth ten dollars.

Shibata is a city in Japan, there are many companies that have been producing vases and other porcelain there for more than 100 years What you are asking is about as generic as "is a vase made in New Jersey valuable" Most shibata vases are produced as tourist souvenirs and may be worth $1 to $100 A rare few are from notable artists or prized manufacturers and may be worth more, but you would need more information than just the city it was produced in to determine that

New in box $1000.00. with the original box of shells maybe a bit more..

I am not a biologist. But I think oyster shells and clam shells and scallop shells are made of calcium and oxygen, which is how (millions of years later) we get the white cliffs of Dover and chalk. If there are vitamins in these shells, I'd be surprised, as I would have expected the former/present tennants to consume them before heading to Dover or anywhere else. Also, if the nutritional value (vitamins) were worth any notice, do you think we'd throw these things away by the truck-load? Yeah. Me neither. (Still, I have no factual basis for this answer... yet.)

The value of a 90mm cannon shell varies by its condition. As of 2014 these shells sell at auction for around 50.00.

User Avatar

they bartered, like the indians. used anmimal skin, beads, shells and things that were in worth or valuble

No such gun. Check model and repost, please. 20 gauge shells were not created in 1812.

France had been defeated by the UK in the Seven Years Wars and when the American Revolution began King Louis determined that anything France could do to injure, irritate or inconvenience the UK by supporting the Patriots was worth a few million dollars worth of artillery, shot and shells, gunpowder and muskets. They smuggled military equipment into the Colonies until after the British defeat at Saratoga, at which time they formed an alliance and sent in a 10,000 man force under Rochambeau and their badly needed Navy.

Cannons and Boats. This was the French's Artillery. __ A variety of weapons were used. The standard was a smooth bore front loading gun made of cast iron or bronze. Galloper guns (3lb, 4lb and 6lb cannons), swivel canons were among the usual artillery pieces. Basically the following were used: Field Cannon, the Garrison Cannon, the Howitzer and the Mortar. There are two excellent websites that describe the weapons and ammunition used. They have illustrations and photos so they are well worth looking at. "Weapons of the American Revolution" looks at all artillery used and "Yorktown Artillery 1781" looks at the Battle of Yorktown specifically.

Your DW is worth $150 in absolutely mint shape to a collector. They were poorly crafted firearms and the cocking mechanism was prone to early wear.

Riverside shotguns aren't rare, but the .44 shot cartridge is. If you want to shoot it, you may pay more for a box of shells than the gun is probably worth. The gun will bring $75 to $150, depending on condition. I have a VERY OLD price list for collectable cartridges that says the shells are worth $1 apiece, but I'm sure that price could be multiplied by 4 or 5 by now.
