I have a box of 49rds (took one out for my collection)of WW 41 LC ammo,I will describe the packaging which is not in good shape,can someone tell me what it is worth? TIA.

white cardboard box,no stryofoam or plastic insert,rounds just stacked in inner box like .22 rds.
winchester western
.41 Long Colt
200 GR Luba(cant read the rest,box torn)
ammo looks great shape,bullets appear copper plated.

MidwayUSA only list's one 41LC ammo at $80/50 ct box,just wondering if this anything special.Thanks.

The simple, .22 style, box was pretty standard for pistol ammo for a long time. I have several boxes from the 60's and 70's that are exactly like that.
.41LC is an obsolete caliber and somewhat collectible. I wouldn't venture a guess as to value since it isn't my area of collecting, but I am reasonably certain you would never get $80 for your box. Maybe half that.
If you really want to get rid of it, post it with some pictures here on the EE. There could be someone on the boards who still has a gun in that caliber.

The box you have was made in the 1970's I believe. A man contracted with Winchester to make one million smokeless rounds. DO NOT shoot these in a blackpowder era revolver or anything made before 1905 to be safe!!!!
