Some cans from old US „STANDARD B RATION“

Postby mreheater72 » Sat Jan 17, 2009 2:57 pm

Hi guys,

here is my newest eBay trade :D :D (I guess some of you had seen the auction in ebay.de a couple of weeks ago):

Four cans and two little spice containers, I believe from a vintage STANDARD B RATION, today called UGR. I don’t know the exact age, the eBay seller said they were from about 1960, but I’m not sure, because I can’t interpret the codes! Do you have any idea how old they could be :?: :?: The condition is nice :D !

Here are the photos:

i would go for the 1960s on the cans,the cinnamon box looks the same
as a black pepper box i had from 1991.
