    Think it is for a machine gun. Forget the type.

    But not sure if they go with the box. Could be but don't know. Hopefully others will
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    They are stripper clips for the italian "Breda Modello 37" MG. The box is the original box the clips were stored in.
    Of course the eagle is fake.

    Do t think it was the 30 I think. Didn't they use the brass 'one time use' thin brass clips.

    Hard to tell the shape accurately from these pics but given the apparentl dimensions of the box (obviously the eagle is outrageous!) I am leaning towards the French Hotchkis M1914.

    Loads of French gear captured by the Wehrmacht and pressed into service in 2nd / 3rd line formations and in defensive positions.

    Is the eagle for real fake? That's my only draw to the box.
