I have a stack of these about 1.5 feet thick,  they are all dated from back in the 40's.    I have attached a few sample pics. Ordnance drawings/ blueprints include, artillery, bombs, rockets, grenades, landmines, torpedoes, etc.   what is a value on a collection like this.

Very cool, I have an ordnance manual from around the same time with similar illustrations.

Please, everybody, the word is Ordnance, not Ordinance. There is a world of difference between the two words.
