    Can you ID this packboard

    Found this at a garage sale the other day. Trying to ID what it is and approximate value. My best guess is a packboard for a radio set.

    Thank you.

    Yup. Standard US WW2 packboard - seems to be missing the load bearing metal shelves which clip onto the cut-outs on the wooden side. These saw use 'til well after the war - US Marines were using these in Vietnam initially to carry their PRC-10s
