After all that work it probably warrants new index cards on the front of each drawer too. I know the original catalogue illustration ( on page 1 ) doesn't seem to show cards, but it would be nice finishing touch, even if you left them blank to age a little.

I thought about that. But they're practically useless they're so small. Clearly way too small for the drawer contents part names and numbers. And in every example of the chest I have seen the label holders are blank. I'm thinking it was just a generic thing that was put on the chests by United-Carr's supplier. It is tempting though.

There are five drawers, so you could probably make them and fit them, see how they look. If they don't look right to you just recycle them sometime.

I'll probably pass for the reasons stated above. The drawers on my postwar 41-C-15 cabinet have contents label holders, too, and I didn't bother with those, either. Good thought, though.

Wing:

Based on the seller's question to you last June, use a military stencil font to print "STUFF" on each of the 5 small labels for your slide-out drawers, making them universally informative. :D Happy Memorial Day!

Greg,

The box looks great! One question please. How does the TM-9 signal corps OD color compare to the original OD color inside the drawers?

Thank you,
Henry

The drawer original interior finish is the same color as the drawer original exterior finish, which I mostly preserved, maybe just a shade deeper due to the lid keeping the sunlight off it. You can compare for yourself. I posted several photos of the drawers pulled all the way out, lids up, at different angles. Those lids are 3/4 original finish 1/4 refinish. As I said, hard to distinguish where they meet. I also posted a couple photos that have the lids open next to drawers with lids closed and the chest shell.
