Default M2 Ball Score

So I was at my local gun store looking around at the used/traded in ammo and I saw a silver spam can. I was surprised to see it was M2 ball. 240 RDS in cartons. The price was 175 but I had a 25% off coupon so it came out to around 130 OTD. Its WRA Lot # 23450, not corrosive is it? Pretty good deal I think. I just wish they had more

According to "Corrosive Primer Redux" by M.E. Podany, WRA began manufacturing non-corrosive ammo beginning with LOT# 23201. You had a major score geting that spam can for such a great price. Enjoy putting everyone of those rounds downrange.

What is this ammo worth now? Do you shootout or collect it? Does anyone know what year lot 23450 was made?

I’m asking because someone has some for sale locally for 250 a sealed can
Too much for me to shoot but I didn’t know if it had collector value.
