    The type of case it could be for some kind of optics !!

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    It is a recent home-made piece, not WWII IMO.
    The stamp seen is a fake too.........

    sorry to dissagree, I think it is a periode, more or less well , made woden case as one see many.
    Mostly ment to carry tools.
    I doo agree the stamps look odd and might be put on a later date!
    Also the kind of wood used for the frame of the suit case, is very hard to find these days.

    Looks like modern screws, pine body and a plywood lid for the inner compartment, with no age and probably a re-enactor job, IMO. It looks as if it has multiple eagles heads above the eagle stamp.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    The timber used is Oregon Pine and as Jerry said the ply looks like modern commercial ply.

    I have to agree here. The wood should almost certainly have signs of being touched by fingers and hands for nearly 70 years and should show darkened areas from handling. Especially around the latches where one would, naturally, expect to see signs of oiling from finger contact. The only parts that looks to have any age at all to it are the latches themselves-which could well have been from an earlier piece, as evidenced by the new screws holding them on. William
