I met with an old collector earlier today. He offered me an ammunition can/box for 200 rounds of linked .50 caliber. It is WWII vintage and appears to be made of brown plastic or the same material as a helmet liner. It has rollers on one side and an opening on the same side. I thought it might be for an airplane (he thought a P-51 wing can). He also offered me 200 linked .50 cal brass with projectiles (not live). Any ideas on what the box is for and what the stuff is worth? Thanks!

It does sound like an aircraft ammunition box.
