    So gentlemen,

    Yesterday was our town wide garage sale and my father had two boxes that he was debating selling, after some thought we decided to not let them go and were trying to find some history as to how old they are....

    The first set of pictures is a box for what looks like 9 shells for a 75mm artillery piece. This box looks as if someone had turned it into a tool box (the piece nailed across) but it is still a very cool box. It has rope handles (well one side is gone) but we are trying to place a time period this would've fallen in. If anyone has any information on this box it would be much appreciated! Much of the writing was worn off but if you want me to try and find something specific I'll get pictures ASAP.

    So without further to do...

    Lucky contestant number two.....its fairly obvious this box is boosters for M20A1's....but we were looking for an approximate time period this (Feeling this one is not nearly as old as the other, probably post WW2 perhaps? )

    Thank you guys!!
