Default "Western" Lead Air Rifle Shot- full tube

I have a tube labeled: "NO. 2 PACKAGE"
Western
Lead Air Rifle Shot
WESTERN CARTRIDGE COMPANY
EAST ALTON, ILL., U.S.A
MADE IN U.S.A

It is full and unopened - barely makes shaking noise. Paper tube is tan colored and end cap has some finish wear and some light rust spots. Appears to be nickel plated on brass on steel. Kidney-shaped opening has about 60% original finish, remainder brass. Looks like a 20 or 28 ga. paper shotgun shell, extra low base. No dents in paper cylinder.

I recall hearing somewheres that lead air rifle shot went to steel in late 20s. I want $28.00 shipped.
