Hi Folks!

At a local auction earlier this week, I picked up this Winchester shotshell crate…

Question: Is this an original shipping crate? Or a modern reproduction?

The hinges look suspicious to me, but they are marked “MADE IN USA”. There are no modern copyright or trademark markings.

 

Thanks!

Dave,

I have an identical one I store rimfire ammo in. It’s a reproduction from the late 80’s. I don’t recall where I picked mine up but It was new when I did, in that time frame.
