Very nice Mike,

I had a watch on that but decided against bidding when the reminder went off.

Glad it's gone to a good home.

Michael

Default Great find !

This was advertised as :
Quote:
Brass Engine Turned Pill Box Badged British Legion 5cms Diameter C1949
The dating was based on an error reading the Reg.Design number .

It is actually a brass version of a "puffbox" which was sold in an E.P version which appears in a 1928 advert. I now have 60% of the items shown , will take some photos.
