Need help to Id cartridge

Long story short I was given an old tin of ammo and can't figure out what this is. Want to figure it out so I can either sell it or at least know what gun it's for, no clue where the gun they were for is.

I came across that online, that's what I was leaning towards. Darn close to it.

Are they worth anything? or should I just stick it back in the tin and put it on a shelf in the garage.

Either .43 Spanish or .43 Egyptian.

Not Egyptian.

Rim diameter is too small.

It's most likely a .43 Spanish. But it COULD be a .44-77 Remington/Sharps. But the Spanish is WAY more common and much more likely.
