These are 1940s era 50 Caliber Ammo Boxes, which puts most of them in the time frame of World War II! Each of these ammo cans represents a unique piece of history for the United States and its armed forces.
The first thing you will notice about these 50 Caliber Ammo Cans is the embossed "Flaming Bomb" on the side. You will also find the manufacturer who made each can put their mark on, with the most prominent being United and Belmont. With new ammo cans you are lucky to find a contract number, much less the makers mark.
This WWII 50 BMG Ammo Can is packed full of features. Some of the features you will find:
- Side Opening Ammo Can
- Markings are Embossed, so can be repainted to As-New
- Dimensions are 11.75" x 5.75" x 7.25"
