Added this ammo crate to the collection recently;

 

Marked: TRACER Caliber 30 M1 in cartons

 

Notice the typical painted tracer color code on the 4 sides of the box.

 

I can figure out all the markings, exept the "30 IN TRA" and "CTN". Maybe the 30 IN TRA is for easy reading, and stand for 30 caliber rounds in tracers?

Nice crate! I believe you are right on the 30 IN TRA. I believe the CTN stands for cartons.
