Hallo the Board!
This box is the primary item was asking for assistance with when I cleverly discovered that I was allowed only four images in my previous message and so edited to two posts.
The cased ammunition cartridge box, manufactured at Watervliet Arsenal, holds 16 rounds of cased ammunition ( 0.50"+) and has a stamp under the word 'Arsenal' that appears to be A. R. SMITH, in a much finer font, same height, with no other date, makers marks or initials apparent. (Please disregard the modern 45-110 cased ammunition used to hold the flap open for photos.)

Any information you may have would be a great help for the curator of this collection and for me. Thank you for your time.
