U07021x1 - Medical Department Flip Top Can

WWII U. S. Army Medical Department flip top can…use unknown.

The can measures 3 3/4" high x 3 " wide x 3/4" thick. It has a hinge on the rear allowing the top to flip open. It is painted OD on the outside with the wording "Medical Department United States Army" printed in black on both the front and the back. The inside is unpainted, but has what seems to be a protective lacquer coating.

I have been given several quite different purposes for this item, all by persons who were quite certain of their answers, but the bottom line is that no one really seems to know. Personal first aid kit, syringes, who knows! I question if it is coincidence that it fits perfectly in one of the pockets of the C-1 Survival Vest.

This example is in near mint condition.
