This 1940s wood crate is genuine, US military surplus that originally held 15 75mm cartridges for the WW2 Howitzer MIAI artillery gun.
The first generation 75mm Pack Howitzer was designed in the US in the 1920s to meet a need for an artillery piece that could be moved across difficult terrain. Due to meager funding, production rates were low; by 1940, only 91 units were manufactured. It was not until September 1940 that the slightly modified M1A1 Howitzer was put into mass production. Production continued until December 1944.

Please note: Ammodors are custom built and made to order. Depending on our current order load, it could take 2-6 weeks us to handcraft your humidor. Please allow additional time for delivery and in some cases, time for materials needed to arrive beforehand as well.
Ammodors ammo can humidors are built using surplus ammo cans that have been proudly used by our Armed Forces. Due to this fact, the outside of the can may have minor scratches, dings or light exterior rust. Exterior markings and stencils will vary. Frankly, we think that’s what makes Ammodors so cool! Ammodors are tough, combat tested and look bad ass! If you’re looking for a “pretty” little cigar humidor, look somewhere else.
Ammodors believes in giving back to the men and women that put their lives on the line to protect our Country and our freedom – both current generation as well as previous. We make frequent donations non-profit organizations such as Hope For The Warriors®, Humidors For Heroes™, USO and others.
