Something dosent look right i am thinking it is a fake but we will have to see what other say !
I'd say fake... it looks like the grain in the wood soaked up the stain that they used to "age" the crate... and everything in general looks way too crisp and freshly made.
Beyond that, it looks like the maker took too much care in applying the markings. I don't think real munitions workers would take the time to make sure the ink stamps were perfect... It doesn't even have storage wear...
It reminds me of the repro Japanese ammo crates that a member on gunboards is making.
No wear at all, and the rope looks almost new.
I wouldn't burn my fingers on it.
Ankara is in turkey,why would the germans get ammo from there.dont like it at all.
A Turkish ammunition crate with silly fake German stenciling on it?
"Much that once was, is lost. For none now live who remember it."
Is it ammo box at all? Eagle is of course a fake.
Agree with the above...
A Turkish ammunition crate with fake German stenciling (spray paint) on it...
