We could beat cheaper than dirt prices and still make a nice profit out of all of these

you think Anvil Arms could engrave them for us? .

Couch - so, you say you just registered - did they give any other details such as if they have a forklift that is provided to load the pallets, or if there are any additional (hidden) fees beyond what the auction price goes for?

I would be in for some cans too. But first off how much are you willing to put into them per can? I have a Army surplus store in Leeds. I have a supplier that can get me cans cheap, and deliver them too. My supplier is currently out of the loop right now. In my store I retail the 50 cal cans for $5.00 each. CTD price is $7.97. If I can help out, let me know. Thanks, DARRYL

load only by appointment within 14 days of close of sale. the lot is 650 cans. you'd have to get them for cheap to justify reselling. there were also 1453 7.62 cans.

Don't forget there is a 10% Buyer's Premium added onto the winning bid, and 8% Alabama Tax added onto the winning bid and the Buyer's Premium. If you also rent a truck to pick them up, the total "per can cost" increases quite a bit from the actual winning bid.

You are welcome.

Yeah, I didn't find out about the Buyer's Premium or the Alabama Tax until I downloaded the invoice to pay for my auction.

+1 on what The_Beer_Slayer said about the cost being way high. Anniston doesn't receive many ammo cans, so there is usually a crowd bidding to buy them when they are available. I would expect the cans to go for $3.75 to $4.50 each, before the Buyer's Premium and the Alabama Tax.

The cans I bought from the Anniston auction were received from the Coast Guard. They are so new, you can still smell the paint curing on the cans. No rust, no sand or mud, and no scratches, they look (and smell) like they were manufactured yesterday. The cans on the auction you linked to are packaged the same way as mine were, wrapped in plactic, with the lids separate from the cans. If you look at other ammo can auctions, the cans are usually just banded, not wrapped in plastic. Maybe these are Coast Guard cans also?
