Dirt Detective

Eastman Kodak M10A3 Fuze Box

Recommended Posts

I have been wanting to fill one of these for a while now and I lucked out and picked up this original box. All the spoons are EK and the same lot number, the box needs a little work in the back but Im happy to have it. Hope you guys like. I will start this post with a pic from the past..thanks quartermaster for finding it.

That is really cool. Surprised they did not get scattered to the 4 corners years ago. That first picture is cool as well

During the war years were these shipped live like this? Or were they armed at their destination?

I love the cardboard box. Very few of those survived I am sure.

I remember going to a huge gun/military show in Ontario when I lived in Rialto in the mid-80s. You could find almost anything there. Was that the Great Western show? That show was awesome!

It was held at the L.A. county fairgrounds, it was twice a year..dealer set up was Thursday and ended Sunday..every building was used, at least 8 of them and they also had outside vendors.. there was nothing else like it..:(

I'm happy I was able to find that photo at the National Archives. Just wish I had gotten the correct credit for the photo (QuestMaster not quartermaster) :wacko:

Sorry Van...that was my mistake...if a MOD could change " Quartermaster" TO " Questmaster" that would be great.

 

I know how you feel I see pics of my mines and grenade spoons all over the net with not a mention where they are from.
