    Korean &  Vietnam War Era 155mm M1 & M1A1 Howitzer Powder Can  

    AUTHENTIC PERIOD ITEM

    ​These metal cans were used to transport the powder charges from the ordnance factory in the US to the artillerymen on the battlefield.  They contained the charges used to propel the projectiles fired by the second heaviest field artillery used by the US Army in Korean & Vietnam War. They had to be weather tight to protect the powder so they seal with a spider like screw down lid.  The handle of the lid is actually solid brass.  The can is clearly stenciled and dated both on the side and on the inner edge by the lid. 

    The majority of these were naturally scrapped decades ago so it remains a very rare ordnance item today.  These would look great on our military vehicle during parades or in your office as an umbrella stand or a storage container.
