US Military Contract 7.92mm Box


Recommended Posts

Seeing the interesting WW II Era Krag ammo box posted, prompted me to post this box. The most interesting part is the Ordnance stamp on the upper left corner of the end of the box. The box is marked on the front (long side)

The lid is missing and there are no other markings except some hand written cryptic numbers in black crayon. The box looks WW II era to me. My guess is to use in captured weapons? One more photo in next post.

Comments welcome, thanks for looking.
