THIS, I BELIEVE, IS A PROTOTYPE DISPATCH CASE INTENDED FOR DOCUMENT PROTECTION OUTDOORS. THERE ARE NO MARKINGS IDENTIFYING IT, BUT IT CAME FROM NAVY DEPT RESEARCH LAB. THE CASE IS 12"X10"X3". THE LEATHER TAB SHOWN IN PICTURE 1 DISINTEGRATED WHEN I OPENED THE CASE FOR PICTURE 4. TWO SMALL GROMMETED HOLES ARE SHOWN IN PICTURE 1; PERHAPS TO ALLOW MOISTURE TO DRAIN. THIS CAME AT A TIME WHEN FIBERGLASS WAS STILL IN A DEVEOLPMENTAL STAGE.
