Kynoch Ammo Value?
A buddy of mine, who is not a member of AR, recently purchased a bunch of gun stuff from an estate. Included was several full boxes of Kynoch ammunition. Does this ammo have any collector value? Can anyone give me an estimate as to their value?







Thanks,

You can check on Gunbroker and Guns International for comparables. Prices might be a bit high, but they will give you an idea of where to start.

Also, the value of Kynoch ammunition can vary, often to a significant extent, based on when and by which iteration of "Kynoch" it was manufactured.

For vintage Kynoch ammunition (as opposed to the modern variety manufactured by Kynamco Limited), that can be determined based on information, including the date code, that is printed and stamped on the back of the box.

Following on from Mike's post, PM me if you want info on determining the date the ammo was manufactured. The iteration of Kynoch is part of the dating process.

Yes, that is correct. There is a good article on this subject (dating Kynoch ammunition boxes) written by Max Lee and published in Issue No. 7, June 2002, of Hammers Back, the Vintagers (Order of Edwardian Gunners) Newsletter. I believe this link should work.

This is the same information I have only I have formatted it onto a double sided A4 sheet with a couple of photos of the reverse side of Kynoch ammo boxes showing the date stamps.

There was also an 'S' letter added after the date which designated a steel jacket.
