WW2 German Shell Container?

Post by Porcelain44 » 08 Oct 2021 14:23

Is this a WW2 German ammunition box or shell container? It measures 10 x 13 x 4 1/2 inches.

P.S. The garage of a neighbor here in Wiesbaden is full of them, the good man stores all his odds and ends from the last 200 years in these german
"Munitionskisten"...
The boxes are so stable that they will survive also the "Third World War". ("Deutsche Wertarbeit") :lol:
