Here's something you don't see often.  This is a hard shell suitcase for SSB(N) FLEET BALLISTIC MISSILE WEAPON SYSTEM ELECTRICAL DIAGRAMS.  Don't panic, the case is empty.  The case has two shipping labels (one on each side) and a metal plate rivoted to one side.  The metal plate is marked NAVWEPS DD 15022  FIRST REVISION and dated 1 September 1961.  The shipping label was addressed to the OIC US Naval Guided Missle School Fleet Air Defense Training Center Dam Neck, Virginia Code 403.  The label is stamped RAIL EXPRESS.  It's also marked 7 of 20.  The case is made of a synthetic material and measures 23 inches x 18 inches x 6 inches.

Nice, you need to fit a handcuff onto the handle for effect. ;)
