Default MG34/42 - "LV Kasten" ??

Hello guys,

I am hoping that someone might have some information or an opinion as to what the markings "LV Kasten" could denote with regards to the contents of this MG34/42 box?

It isn't a marking which I can recall seeing before.

Many thanks

I don't think a barrel (lauf) would fit in that box. Not necessarily something to do with MGs.

Just another though...there is an optic box for 2cm Flak30 in an other thread. It is stamped LV21 for LineaVisier 21. Perhaps your's contained parts or cleaning tools related to this gun sight?

Thank you Bruno and Carles for your thoughts.

The LV could potentially be related to that gun sight Carles, good spot. Although, I think this is perhaps going to remain a mystery to be able to find out for sure...

Of course other ideas welcomed too! Thanks again
