The crates were in service during WWII. They have survived quite harsh conditions, yet came out in excellent shape. Each and every crate is hand crafted and is one of a kind. They can be wall mounted or placed on display on a flat surface. They make great wedding, anniversary and retirement gifts. You can look through our photo gallery to see some additional ideas. The original writing on the lid states:
Specs: The T1IDR ammunition crates housed 120 cartridges, caliber .50, armor piercing incendiary M8. 10 rounds per carton, 6 cartons per can with a total of 2 cans. The crates weight was approx. 42 lbs. during its service period.
We do our best to preserve the original writing. The majority of the crates come to us with spray paint covering the specs. and several layers of dirt and debris. We hand sand these areas carefully, doing our best to not damage the weather worn stenciled specifications.
