WW2 ammo box?

TAEHB is a post war marking (late 40s/50s) for rounds in bandoleers. Probably a KW era crate, though I don't think there is a real way to narrow down by specific lot code.

Your shipping box is from the 1950s. WCC lot numbers from WWII ended with 6427. Still a nice item with clear markings from a less common manufacturer.

I'm only a year late..  I have the same Army ammunition box with the same 6653 lot number, but mine has the original mailing label that says it went to a rifle and pistol club by Buffalo, NY from Letterkenny Army Depot, Chambersburg, PA back when you could order amm
