Does anyone know what this box was for? I am thinking ammo or storage box for something. Has some extra holes drilled in it that I can weld up. Thanks for any help. Dan

Im pretty sure its German, perhaps a WWI fortress can (500) rds. J

PS, make sure the holes are not original mounting holes before you weld them up. J

That's an Mg08 ammo can, it held two 250 round cloth belts. There should be a metal divider in the center of the can. Sometimes these have been removed. That would probably account for the extra holes you're seeing.
