How much were they asking? I'd have bought it if it was reasonable
I looked in Sturges and did not see one. Of course there are many 7.65mm and 9mm 'commercial DWM boxes
That is really cool.

Not something worth faking. The label identifies the RWS / Geco plant in Durlach and the box shape suggests a type similar in construction to their commercial boxes, just without printing.

They may have used up old commercial packaging in late 1943, early 1944 due to supply issues.

Interesting box.

I wish I could run into a box of 7.65 WWII ammunition, even commercial.

Do the bullets have a black seal line around the base (casemouth)?

The bullets are iron core, the Tp abbreviation suggests it is for tropical use (North Africa).
