Somebody a few days ago was asking about pics of the boxes (not crates) that 8mm ammo was distributed in. I found this on feeBay, represented as WWII ammo boxes. Described as follows:
"Original WW2 German surplus ammo box dated 1938 with maker code 442 for 8mm. cartridges. This box contained 20 of the smaller box's you see. The smaller box's held 15 rounds each. It has a seam split neatly open along the bottom edge that could be repaired easily. It is 12" by 5" tall. The contents have been removed and you are bidding only on the large empty box, no ammunition! Will make a great display item with your K98 items or field gear."

And here's the pics (Somebody let us know if these are not "correct"):
