They are worth what some collector will pay for them. They probably have corrosive primers, the U.S. military started phasing out corrosive primers in '49 and it was fully implemented by '54. I've seen them going for $15-$20 a box at gun shows. They look great in a display case with a 1911A1 from WWII.
