Answer
Dear Brenda,
         The box contained M525 PD Fuses for 81mm mortars as well as M43A1 High Explosive ammunition. The markings on the box looks like it is from the Vietnam War-era and I'm unaware of how much something like this goes for. You can list it on EBay though. I hope this answers your question and May God Bless-Colonel Robert A. Lynn, Florida Guard
