Just need to verify that some of mine are WW2 era and not later more modern types.

Thanks Greg...yep that looks like a standard 30cal ammo tin. I have ones made by CANCO and REEVES but i also have one made by UNITED but it has a strange sprung loaded catch on the side...i wsa just wondering what this was for.
Since it has the catch on the side does it also have the hinge on the side? If so I think it is WW2. I don't think they used those side hinge cans after the war.

The clamp and latch assembly is made by M A Co and the markings and data are all standard WW2 looking ones.
The only "hinge" i can see is the lid hinge at the top of the can

That is the tripod for the M1917A1 water-cooled .30 cal. I'm sure a quick google search would give you more info thatn you wanted!

In my experience, the cans you posted generally go in the $10-$25 range. The price range depends on the normal variables such as condition, manufacturer, markings, etc.
