MG34 or MG42 ammo case (Patronenkasten 34). The M34 ammo cases were originally developed for use with the MG34, and held up to three hundred rounds of the 7.92mm ammunition. The M34 and M41 cases were used through-out the war with minor construction variations and were adopted for use with the MG42 on its introduction. This case is an early aluminum example having nice field-grey coloured paint, the case is showing some normal scratches caused by usage. The box has been reissued as an first aid box and is showing a painted on red cross and the stencilled script "Verbandkasten", in my opinion the paint might have been touched-up slighlty, but it certainly looks great and is priced accordingly. The box is also showing various originally painted on symbols and numbers, see photos. The box is nicely maker marked with a company's logo, a WaA marking and dated 1938. Nice example in good used condition!
