Towards the end of WWII the Army and Marine Corps stopped ordering Carlisle dressings in metal tins. This was a cost savings when ordering hundreds of thousands or a million dressings.   The Army carlisle switched to one in a waxed cardboard sleeve.

The Navy Marine issue switched to a tough foil like pouch.   This one has a US Navy stock number  on it 2-396 on the front. All Navy medical supplies like this were given a stock number which began with 2.  The Navy ordered all medical supplies, including Carlisle dressings as the USMC did not have a Medical Corps.
