Here are a couple more historical pictures. I've included a shot of what the KC 250's inside the crates would have looked like - hopefully with less dents. As per the markings, crate designation and photo id, fill material was mustard with a small burster for droplet formation.

I don't know what you are using with your "converter" but most flatbed scanners now come with a slide and negative scanning capability, many with very good specs. For them there is an adapter included (frame). You can place your negatives or slides in the frame, then place the frame on the glass. On the inside of the lid of the scanner is a cover that must be removed, there is a light in there that acts like a slide show for the scanner. From your softwear scanner you then select "positive image" (for slides) and B&W or color.

I use both a flatbed and a Nikon slide scanner, but the Nikon is a bit pricey if you are just doing a few. Keep your resolution over 4000 pixels per inch and you should have good results, you will have to re-size the image later.
Thanks for those pics US. :)

Regarding that KC,i have a good pal who has a mint 26 fuze for one.
Its an early version that actually has 'KC250' stamped on it.

Tthe first photo in the set is fantastic!!!! All the Heers Atmers piled on the shelves made me drool. I have a Heers Atmer complete with transit case in my collection. This is a first seeing them stored in this manner.
Thanks for sharing.
