1943 DATED MK.1 MOD.2 1.1" / 28MM ANTI-AIRCRAFT NAVY AMMO CAN GREAT SHAPE WWII
Another very cool old WWII ammo box.
1.1" AMM BOX MK.1 MOD.2 and is dated 1943 in the center of the lid. This held ammunition belts of four rounds for newly introduced (1936) 1.1" / 28MM Navy Anti-Aircraft guns. The 28MM took the place of previously positioned 50 Cal, for better defensive capabilities.
The lid is gray paint, the body is galvanized, with paint in places. Some minor surface rust on the outside bottom, otherwise very good shape. The inside looks great and is a little dusty, but no rust inside. Good seal and all four latches are functioning. Couple of small dings one one side(no handle side), check pics for detail. This can has a second date on the side, indicating it was utilized a second time in 1953!
Weighs 23 lbs
Outside Dims approx:
12" L x 12" W x 14" H
Inside Dims too difficult to measure. Bigger on outside corners and skinny so latches lay flat.
How do we categorize/grade our surplus? We strive to make this as simple as possible. grading system consists of a multi-step process to sort and classify our surplus goods into an easy to understand format. We inspect each item for wear, damage, and appearance to assure our customers are getting the quality gear they deserve. This system allows choice as to what will suit them best.
A = Excellent is the top of the line. This will also include any like new, or unissued gear. We want to provide our customers with the possible product, an\t the best possible prices. Doing so, we pay a bit more to get the best there is. All surplus is by definition a used item, but these have been checked and are as close to new condition as you will find short of paying full price from the original manufacturer.
B = Good is where the wear of the items are staring to show. These products have plenty of life left in them. There many be some slight issues with staining, minor frays, small tears, and other minor cosmetic issues. These are great for our customers who will use the products and do not mind a few imperfections, and additional savings! All zippers and drawstrings are inspected and are in good working order.
C = Fair is our lowest grade. These products have more noticeable issues with overall wear and tear. These are still useful items, but are far from new condition. These are perfect to tuck away in your car, Bail out bag or let the kids overnight in the back yard. Zippers still function well and there may be minor frays or small tears but overall functions as they should.
*DISCLAIMER* We sell military surplus!
All Government surplus including military surplus should be considered used. New or Like New is more than likely out of the package/issued, but left unused. Please take this into consideration before buying, on that note we do physically inspect all elements and ensure you are getting a very usable product.
