Some years back, I was at a yard sale when I discovered a .50 cal. ammo box for $1.00. The lady said that it was her fathers from years ago. I opened it up, and found two USGI bandoleers with Garand clips, loaded with WCC 1944 .30-06. There were two boxes of the same ammo, and a bandoleer with 12 ga., brass cased shotgun shells. There was a pack of dessicant in it from 1945. I told her that it was worth more, offered her $20.00, but she declined. She said that I must know about the "stuff", and would keep it better than she could. Her father had passed away at age 88, and was a veteran of Europe.
For whatever reason, I still have the ammo can, and it's cargo, undisturbed after nearly 20 years. Sort of a shrine to a departed vet, I guess. :D
