Old timey shotshells? Any value?

Quick question. While organizing some ammo I came across a box of older shotshells. Unsure of the vintage but definitely nothing too recent. Anyone know if these are of any value? FWIW they are plastic hulls.

I don't think they are old enough to be called vintage, probably 20 years old or less. I'd shoot them up and not worry about it.

Kinda figured as much, but I wanted to check. With the popularity of hipsters these days anything remotely "vintage" is $$$. I figured there may be some on GT!

I have some 16ga paper shells, I have been shooting for the last 10yrs. Not sure if they are worth more but since the boxes are not in perfect condition I just shoot em.

$5 a box, they probably aren't too old. Are they steel shot?

The Federal Hi-Power isn't to old, maybe from around the 70's to mid-late 80's. Relatively plain box and plastic hulls. Not really collectable. Definately not steel shot though.
