Default Value of 5.56 ammo, LC headstamp

Hi,

A friend inherited some 5.56 mm ammo, headstamped LC 76. They are in bandoliers, in 10 round stripper clips.

I'm unsure how much he has (at least 200 rounds but he hasn't counted it yet).

What is it worth, per round?

Thanks for the assistance.

ASSUMING it is actually factory as-issued ammunition, prices right now for M193 are higher than usual.
It was just a few months ago, mid-twenty cents, now it's mid-thirty cents per cartridge.

Looks like it's worth somewhere between 37.2 - 40 cents a round.
