Need help identifying a cartridge from you ammo gurus

So recently i was given a box of vintage 9mm ammo...never opened it until tonite and found a bunch of ammo that AINT 9mm in there

I have it pictured below next to a 38special round for size comparison


I also have pics of the 2 mags



MOST of it has LC 52 LC 53 or LC 54 on the head stamp which I know means Lake City and year of manufacture


but i have NO idea what caliber these are or if theyre worth anything to anyone...I have approx 80 of these plus 2 15 round mags

Judging by this I would maybe think .32 S&W Long maybe? Or a .30 Pedersen round?

Looks like .30 carbine, aka 7.62x33mm.
