Thank you............. these are old empty IED/Landmine containers. I have looked through several hundred photos and they appear to be from about the 1910-1930s type. The value on a historical point is 45.00-50.00 each and would be bought for decoration or display. Very interesting never saw photos on here of items like this. I have seen them in person for appraisal at a military museum.
