    I'll try to help you! Prunes are dried plums. People take prunes as a laxative. As for ammo boxes, you have to collect them for them to have value. I do not, but some do, and of course the older they are and the less common they are the more they'd be worth. They would also have some value to cartridge collectors who have the cartridges and need an original box to put them in. In this case, the OP thought the wooden box was for .30-40 Krag cartridges, but it turned out that it originally contained 30-40 plums.

    Love it! But I woulda jumped too. Beez, you need to post your 30-40 ‘ammo’ box on the Krag forum. You’ll get a ton of snarky replies. ‘Civilize ‘em with a Krag 30-40 plum.’
