The "Gun Report" lists 5 variations
.31 cal cork base $35.00
.31 cal brass and cork base $35.00
.36 cal brass and cork base $150.00
.41 cal cork base $40.00
.41 cal brass and cork base $40.00
The values listed are from Oct.1999 and are low the rounds have been selling for considerably more. I would like to have a sample in my collection, but they are quite illusive. hope this helps you.

Thanks for that . I don't have any of them , but have always thought they were pretty neat and would fit in with my early and transitional collection. Something to wish for at Christmas perhaps?

There have been several of the .31 & .41 offered for sale on AA & GB in the past six months. I didn't realize there was a .36 or two types in the other calibers (thanks, Mr. T!). Pricing seems to be in the $50 - $90 range for them at the moment. muzza, there was at least one in Vic Engel's last auction.
