A friend found in a dumpster outside a house under construction. The "wing bolts" come from field research. This fund is not common in our.

Thanks for the feedback.  The wood crate this ammo is in is just a little wider than the length of a 20 round box of 1911 .45acp.  There was enough room between the  ends of the boxes and the wall of the crate to get some cushion material inserted.  I wish I would have looked at the crate to see if it had stenciling or not and also to have counted the number of boxes it held.  I saw no metal lining.  I may see it again next weekend and if so I'll take a closer look.  Thanks again.
