This box is a beuty with layers over layers of history.
Undernethe is a box intended for a downgraded ammunition as already explained in short by Ole. The low grade Ammunition were loaded during the second world war so for a limited period of time of about 1940-1945. This is a left over never used in production, so the label is covered and ready for a covering label.
The content is ammunition imported from Germany in 1940-1941, and the factory code used is 30. The factory code is only found on the box, never on the cartridge. The cases is stamped with the factory code DWM following the Swedish standards with the year at 9 and 3 a clock, and the factory code at 6 a clock. The projectile is a m/94 of the ogival model.
This ammunition were bought by Sweden when Sweden were in a distress and were building up the in country production to cover the intended war month needs of world war two. The back side were that the ammunition were not in full, or maybe not even in part produced by DWM in Germany. Instead it is produced by the occupied factory of FN in Belgium. The forced labour made a most coreagious work in sabotaging the production and mainly managed to make uneven loads of the ammunition. The work were actually so “well done” so a mere weighting of the cartridge were not enough to judge what cartridge were sabotaged. Instead, the projectile needed to be pulled, the powder to be emptied and then the cartridge were reloaded again.
This is from a early revision made in 1946, and it were probably quite limited as I have only seen two dates until now for this year.
Later on, Sweden received compensation from Germany to revice the rest of the ammunition, a work done in between 1953-1955.
So this is actually a god box and label to keep in a historical perspective and a splendid collectors item.
