A very nice box, especially with the metal tin which am lacking at the moment, any one have one for sale. Any chance of having more pic's of the metal tin out of the box. This is the first time i have seen this type of metal box close up. When they repack ammo with these metal tins they de-solder them with a soldering iron remove the ammo, clean the ammo up, repack it and re-solder it again.

This would be an idea to do this to this type of box as not to bend the lid off every time you wanted to look inside it, just de-solder it and rest the lid on top, saves breaking it. There was a guy on ebay selling these wing nuts, If any of you guys need a close up picture for reference of these nuts ill see what i can do. thumbsup.gif

What other Boxes do you have.

Thanks bfryar44 for the photos. thumbsup.gif I have never seen one of these boxes until now. It looks kind of fragile. The wing nut you have must obviously be early war time to my pressed steel ones, nice to know that there is a variety of types. I will keep a look out for wings nuts for these boxes on my travels.
