Very nice boxes JP, thanks for posting. Several more to look for! The boxes specifically for Police are an interesting lot. There are quite a few of them, even among those made in the US.

JP - Thank you. That is very nice of you!

JP,
on the last box in the line “124 grs NTOX ET LT” do you know what ET and LT stand for ?

(By the way, I am surprised to see grains used on an official label in the country that invented the metric system. Considering the pidgin German in use by our military, I certainly do not blame you.)

hello,
sorry, I don’t know the meaning of ET and LT.

Regarding the fact the weight is not anymore in official (and international) units, it is a shame of course, but please do not be too much demanding !
Be happy it is not yet in arabic language, which will be the case within a few years.

The 4th box is military style, it is used by “Gendarmerie” for training.
ET is for “étui” = case and LT for “laiton” = brass
