C Ration Combat Meal, Chicken, Turkey, B-3 Unit, Vietna

This item for bids is a very nice item. Its a Vietnam Vintage C Ration Combat Meal. Its been completly gone through and referbished. This meal at one time had leaked because of its age and acids in the food. We removed the products in the leaking cans, steam cleaned them, filled them with 180 degree R-60 IGI wax to preserve them and add the weight back to the units, then oiled and buffed the cans . They are back in their normal condition and you can not tell they have been restored as they are filled from the bottom and you cant see that in the display position.

These are old vintage items and once they are gone t will be no more. Thats why we spend so much time restoring them. You also never have to worry about this meal leaking again and destroying your other items in the meal. We also cleaned and referbished the box so t are no stains. This is just a very impressive Combat Meal and only the Pears and Turkey are referbished. The rest of the meal is complete and full.

The Turkey was packaged by the " Blue Star Foods Co " which was out of "Council Bluffs Iowa "and a smaller packager for the US Military. This is a 6 3/4 oz can and has the US Inspectors P-45 Stamp on the top. This one cleaned up real nice and looks very impressive.

Also included is the " Quartered Pears " which was packaged by a company in Claifornia
