Does anyone care to venture their thoughts as to the value of an opened, but full (12 cartridges), box of original Frankford Arsenal Colt's Revolver .45 cal. inside primed cartridges. These were made for the Colt SAA Cavalry model revolver for several months in 1873-1874 until they were replaced with the shorter Colt Revolver Ball cartiridges which would also work in the Schofield revolver.

I saw a box, opened but reglued shut, that sold in 2007 at Cowen Auction for almost $750 + buyer's premium, which seems a little high. Any thoughts?

I bought an unopened box of 1874 dated F A's last year. I think I paid $900. It's a real nice one. I gave 3 or $400 for an opened FA nice box from 1878 (short cartridges) and a little less for an unopened but ratty box of FA 1880 (again, short cartridges). This was all within the last year and all were full. I may have overpaid, but I wanted them.
