I first saw these on a site that specialized in American A.E.F. items and it was being pitched as a A.E.F. preserves tin. I go to the Show of Shows and the Max show every year and you occasionally see them with other Doughboy items... Me personally, I think that food was packaged and shipped overseas in them and the great majority ended up as trench lanterns or containers for personal effects. I bought this at a yard sale a few years ago and it was full of old buttons and it also had a WW1 sweet heart pin in the mix, very cool... Anyhow, I'll let you be the judge but I think that it would display well, in a dugout setting. It has a a few rust spots and some shallow dents but is still very solid... Please take a peak at my other items and good luck to you.
I WILL, whenever possible, combine shipping on all items purchased. I will do my best to keep shipping to a minimum but it is an unfortunate cost. Sorry, I WILL NOT ship internationally because with certain countries, it is a monumental hassle...
I have a full time job with strange hours so it may take at best a few days to post an item after payment. I try and list items so I can ship on Saturday as this is the really the only day that I have free so reasonably prompt payment is always appreciated. Thanks and good luck
