    Very interesting boxes. Could you post a picture of the label which seems to indicate the box held 20 German anti-tank grenades made in 1945.
    The first one is super, and has the same latch as a black wooden box I had with REICHSEIGENTUM in large letters on it. Carried some war equipment for the army.
    Thanks for posting.

    I can't clearly read the first box but it looks like Lat.Kast.37 Pi. It is a chest for something model 1937. Apparently, it was quite heavy. Gew. 75 kg = Weight 75 Kilograms. It would be about 165 US pounds! I need a better read on the lettering. NH

    Second box contained 20 Large anti tank rifle grenades as indicated. The date looks like 1943 to me. Here is a description of the grenade from the 1958 Picattinny Arsenal German Ordnance dictionary. "Large antitank rifle grenade (Grosse Gewehrpanzergranate) was fired from the same 30mm discharger cup (Shiesbecher) as the small grenade described under a). The head of this grenade was larger (max diam 1-3/4 ") The length of the ensemble (head and stem) was 7", the total weight 13 1/2 oz and the wt of the filler (TNT) 4 1/2 oz. Its range was 100 yd. NH

    Tom - Nicely done! I did not see the comma. So the box contained lanterns weighing about 16 1/2 pounds. That makes much more sense. NH
