What ammo can did I just buy??

This sucker is a monster!! It's about 4x the size of a normal .50cal can.

It's got 6 big hasps on it, a cardboard box/ribbon inside it, and the inside/gasket look brand new.

The outside says a bunch of stuff including "116 LBS. WT." and "1.5 CU. FT." Like I said...BIG!

Any clue when it is from or what it's worth??

No idea but you could probably put wheels on it use that thing as a hot dog cart.

No idea about the age but see if there are any on EBay to get an idea of worth.

Actually, some did look similar but they had shoulder straps, not wheels. And since this is a thread about ammo cans, lets try to stay on track.

I tried and I tried googling it using the round count it is marked for and some of the other markings...nothing. I've seen similar designs that were used in WWII and were in the $30-$40 range but again, that is not THIS can. So far, I haven't seen this one online.

The box reads "Cal .30" It is likely .30-'06 rifle ammo.

Ok, that makes sense. Any idea on age or value?

Thanks

After 10 years it seems like I found an item that has finally stumped all of GT! Can that really be?? C'mon, someone's gotta have some info on it.

Thanks
