105mm Ammunition Crate
Posted 10 July 2011 - 12:24 PM
I am helping a relative clean out a storage shed, and I came across what is a very interesting piece to me. It is a wooden box with two rope handles, and it was used for 105mm M68 shells. It held two shells. I tried to do some research on it, but I could not locate any info on it. So, I have decided to turn to you fine folks here! I've read through some of the topics here and I am very impressed by the knowledge out there. Now, my question(s) are this: Is this an item that has any value to collectors at all? Basically, I'd like to know if it is worth posting on ebay, or craigslist, etc. Or should I just take to a flea market to get a couple bucks out of it.
I want to make it clear, that I am not soliciting offers on this board, because, after reading through the boards, you need 50 posts or so before you can post an item for sale. I just don't know if this thing is worth 5 cents, $5, or $500. I would gladly post pics, if you would like to see them, AND if someone walks me through how to do it.
Thanks in advance for any help you guys can give! I think I will learn a lot reading these boards.

Are there any casings in the crate?

- sell it. not easy, except FTF, due to the size and weight, which will impact shipping costs. However, there might be a market for one? I dunno.
- use it as a tool box.
- use it to store some of your militaria (depending how clean the interior is). Likely the best long-term option, unless you set up at shows or flea markets.
Good luck, and let us know what you end up with.
