    WWI Ammo Box

    Okay, I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right place, but my fiance and I were roaming through antique stores today, and I saw this and had to have it. It's in fair shape, but I wouldn't use it for anything more than storage. Nothing spectacular, but I like it and I thought I'd share. AB1.jpgAB2.jpgAB3.jpgAB4.jpgAB5.jpg

    Odd how we determine the things we have to have I would have done the same thing. Thanks for sharing the pics.

    Looks like its missing the handle,but would make a great addition to a reloading or gun room

    Awesome. I wouldn't have left the store without it either. Very cool.

    I can't decide if I should just display it, or if I should go ahead and pack it with ammo and put it to good use. hehehehe It has some cracks and as Dukalmighty mentioned, it's missing the strap. If I could find photos of an original one, I might consider restoring it.

    Hey, thanks Chris! I also found this link that'll be helpful I think:

    90th IDPG 1917 / 1917a1 Ammo Box Restoration

    Looks like mine is the "1917" or "WW1" style box/chest. Oval cut lid and angled front edge.
