Two M1 ammo cans. "Box, Ammunition, Caliber 30, M1". These are the ones that can be easily attached to the M1917A1 cradle. See pictures for details. The one on the left is original paint with yellow stencil lettering. Manufacturer mark is a 1 in a circle, with a diamond. The one on the right has been repainted (I think), and is marked "CROWN" with US and bomb. The crown marked box does not have a gasket. Both are in great shape, no rust. NOW $50 (new price) for the pair + shipping extra.

The one with "1" in a circle is actually the letter "I" inside the letter "O". That is the logo of the Owens Illinois Can Company. "Crown" is Crown Cork and Seal. Two of the four makers of the M1 boxes. For anyone interested in such details.
