    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.
