30-40 Krag Box, Movie Prop?


Hello, All…

I received this image from a friend quite some time back. ( I added the color; original was black and white) My opinion is that it was not made at Frankford Arsenal and is not nearly 120 years old. Possibly a movie prop, etc. But, never say never. Your thoughts?



Certainly appears non-authentic to me. Sans-serif font alone is a big difference from other period boxes.


I agree not right. Army Model Gatling Gun ???

I’ve not seen that on a box, For Gatling Gun yes.
