Default Vintage Federal 12ga paper shot shelss

Find of the day today was these three full boxes of Federal 12ga HiPower paper wrap shot shells. Two boxes looked to be never opened. The third has some minor tearing on the box top. All shells in perfect untouched condition. No water damage, all artwork on box is clean and crisp.

How do I determine year of manufacture?

I have seen values of the empty box alone anywhere from $15 to $40..how much does the fact fact that these boxes are full add to the value?

I don't think it really will add to much value but make it a lot easier to sell down the line. I sorta collect old shotgun shells but haven't kept up with prices. I used to trade modern shells for old ones. I got several full boxes that way. I found that boxes marked "US Property" seem to the ones people want in general.
They make a great display. I filled a shelf in the den with these.
Nice find.

Sure it adds value, collectors like full boxes in mint condition. These are nice looking boxes..

Contacted Federal Ammunition about the shells, they supplied me with documentation that shows these shells were manufactured in 1953. Pretty neat.
