I found this box today and would like to know when and by whom it was re-packed. The box is identical in size to a typical 7.62x51mm NATO 20 rd. box. The label looks profesionally printed and applied, so I don’t think this was done in someone’s garage. Obviously the contents are WWII vintage German from “aux” and the box label info came right off the originals. I’d like to see this go to a collection where it would be better appreciated.
I have a few Kurzpatrone for reference in my collection, but I do not collect it per-se. This just seemed too unique to pass up. It is still sealed, so I cannot open to inspect the contents, but they sound like they are simply loose-packed. The stapling on the side of the box reminds me of something that might have come out of a Com-Bloc country for some reason, as does the color and texture of the box material.
