Quick Overview

This is the first type K ration box with only the nomenclature 'U.S. Army Field Ration K' and type of unit on the outside, late 1942. production. The inner box is the rare telescoping type IV, basically a cardboard tray in a cardboard sleeve which has no end flaps but is wrapped in waxed paper. This was placed in the outer box. During production all the components were placed in the tray. This type of K ration box is very hard to find and missing from most collections. The tray misses a flap with rounded corners on one side. The outer box has a tear. However the rarety of this K ration box is such that is warrants a place in a collection. This actual box can be seen on kration.info the inner carton page.

Very good condition.
