I purchased this metal tray with three others at a thrift store last week. They were marked 4.00 a piece. I was looking thru them for the one in best condition, and the guy working there told me they had been on the shelf for a couple of months and I could have all of them for 5.oo . Naturally I had to have them all. At first, I could not find any type of identification on them, but I was showing them to someone at work and he was actually able to find the markings on the back. They were very, very faint, but it was U.S. NICRO, and the date 1943 ! I thought that was pretty cool. I am thinking they were probably used during WW2 and beyond. I dont remember using them when I was in the service during the 80's. I can just imagine the stories they would tell if they could talk. I would appreciate any information that anyone might have. I included photos of the back, but they are very faint.
Thanks for looking and have a great day! Thrifty Gypsy
