    Default Parker Wolverine Mk1 Ammo Box

    Can Anyone tell me anything about an ammo can marked Ammunition Component Box MK1 Parker Wolverine Co. 1944. It apparently was reused later by The Zenith Radio Corp. for a Navy product dated 8/67. Wondering what was the original use and maybe also the Zenith product it was used for. I was surprised to find no search engine hit on the Parker Wolverine Company. Is this a rare ammunition can ?

    Thank You

    The only ammunition component I can think of that might have come from the Zenith Radio corporation would be a proximity fuze- those came into service I think in 1944...

    And wouldn't you know it- do a search for the item identified in the markings, the TDD Mk 43 Mod O and voila- proximity fuzes

    MK 43 MOD 0 TDD

    You gotta search for any markings you see and usually something comes up...
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...
