The Arms & Equipment in the Civil War Message Board

springfield ordnance district

I am a estate liquidator in Connecticut. Found in an estate was a shop table. The metal plaque says "Springfield Ordnance DistricT - War Dept. - Contract W-ORD - serial #". Also stamped in the oak top is "USA - 8556 / ORDF - 1196 / FR6M-ARMY / 8-8-44". The piece has steel legs, osk top, and single drawer under top in center.

I'm looking to find out if there is any interest amongst collectors for pieces like this, and is there a place where I might find more information on the work bench.

Thank you for your time,
Mark Sanderson
