Re: Hummmm...7.92 Boxes


#1

My favorite full 7.92 Mauser box.


#2

Why?


#3

Because it is a great box.


#4

I have pictures/scans of 1944 “wg” SmE labels ranging from lot 5 to lot 57 and 1945 “wg” lot 1 to lot 11.

Now a question for SteveF and only Steve (unless dutch is also SteveF,now). What is it that you like so much about this box ?

I am a fan of the 7.9 boxes and have many. What do you find of such interest about this one ?

If I had to collect only one caliber it would most likely be the 7.9.

Steve – What is/are the headstamp/heastamps in your 1944 wg 5 box? Mine is an empty box.
My 1944 wg 6 box has “Wg 44 4 St+” and “Wg 44 5 St+” headstamps.

Are you also SteveF ?[/quote]

Well the answer is borders on silly. For some strange reason I have attraction to the Phosphorus 7.9 round. Although I love anything cartridge wise from WWII Germany.

That is the way it is here. There are some SERIOUS 7.9 and 7.9 box collectors to play with.


#11

NICE boxes Phil!

H/s on mine is wg 44 4 st+


#12

The ONLY reason to collect anything is because you like it. We all like this stuff and that is why we are here. Nothing silly about it. Crazy ? Maybe !


#13

Thanks Dutch!


#14

I know! When I tell people I collect cartridges, they say what?


#15

Thanks Steve!


#16
