Just thought I’d share last weekends find! M3a4 ammo cart original paint!

Post by JohnB » Mon Sep 20, 2021 3:09 pm

Picked this up last weekend out in rural Minnesota on a farm. The guys father purchased this around 1947 at the Minnesota State fair agricultural display. I’m guessing it was probably 20 bucks back then ha ha! It’s beautiful with all original paint! He said he found the tow bar in the junk pile on the farm and realized it wasn’t junk! “Saved” The only problem was he welded a washer in the lunette eye.

You are right.
It is « Verbanddoos » or « Verbandkoffer » in Dutch :D .
