Are you interested in WWII War history, this is a great find for you.  

This is an original WWII U.S. Army 10 Cap Blasting Machine, without the original handle. These machines were used by demolition crews on D-day to destroy the many obstacles on French beaches that had been set up during years of German occupation. It has a brass lower housing and zinc (I think) lid that appears to be zinc.  It has the two mounting buttons that are still attached. There is no leather carry handle/cover.  The data plate on the side reads:

U.S. ARMY

THIS MACHINE MAY LOSE

NOTE: Over the years we have collected items with historical interest.  The majority of our memorabilia is war related and we do not wish to offend anyone.  We do not support or condone war but believe that historical items can remind us of our history, teach us about specific moments in time and hopefully prevent us from reliving any manmade horrific times in history.  Any items we offer are intended for collectors of memorabilia and hopefully will be used for educational purposes.    All of our collectables come from our own private collection via many X-service personnel and government auctions and have included Nazi party, Holocaust, Allgemeine and Waffen SS, Luftwaffe, Kriegsmarine, Kamikaze, Japanese, Australian, U.S., British items, etc.  We should not forget our past but should endeavor to learn from its mistakes. It is our hope we never forget those that have died as a result of war.  May god protect them.
