    I have some old, old ammunition probably from the early fifties. .30-.30. One box seems to be in good shape (The box and ammo) and is Savage brand so I guess they made some.

    Just wondering if it might be collectible.

    Generally, it's the box that's valuable, unless it's a rare caliber.

    I collect cartridges... sounds like what you have isn't terribly rare or interesting. Usually when you get into 1890s-1920 range the rounds start to have a lot of value because there were cartridges that were only made for a few years as different companies experimented with that new "smokeless powder".
