1952 RCI B-2 Unit

Postby JT1991 » Mon Sep 18, 2017 9:33 pm

Hey everyone,

I recently purchased an RCI B-2 Unit dated July, 1952. Best deal I could find on eBay. It is now the oldest ration in my collection.
This is my first RCI B-2 Unit and I though I'd share it with you all. 65 years of goodies sealed in a can! Since this is my only one at the moment, I will be keeping sealed. I'll tell you though, it's very tempting. Must resist! :shock:

I've been looking for one of those for a long time too. I would be happy with just one of the regular RCI accessory packets!
