Interesting Dutch 9mm navy tin

The tin is still sealed tight, but also empty.
Looks like it was made this way, perhaps as a demo or instruction model.

Here is a 24-round version of the tin, dating from 1939. It is sealed, but full.

John. Nice box! Never seen that one before.
I wonder if the Dutch navy actually repacked and resealed these tins after opening.

Here is a crate packing instruction from the 1930s.

Very interesting item!
