Default Parker brass casings or hulls

Can someone give me a quick primer on Parker Bros. brass casings and the value of such? I have not seen much trade and I may have a chance to buy a few. The gentleman has a few 10 gauge and one 12 gauge.

Thanks in advance.

Brian,
If they are 10A and 12A, $20 to $30 apiece.

If you are looking for originals, be aware that there are reproductions out there. 'Track of the Wolf' comes to mind as being a source for them.

If they are 12-b, they could run upwards of several hundred dollars depending on condition, Gary

Default Parker brass shells.

How can you tell a 12a from a 12b ?

This is a timely thread as a friend of mine had given to him 14 loaded 12 ga brass shells. The headstamp reads Remington UMC, No 12, Best. According to the overshot wad they are loaded to 3-1/4 Dr. Equiv. and 1-1/8 oz buckshot. They measure 2-1/2" in length and are pretty much tarnish free.

So, are they A or B? What vintage might they be? What might they be worth?
