    Wait for Ade and some of the others to comment. I think it may just be a random cigarette case that some one added the insignia with the soliders face to. Cheers, Robert

    Although I have not seen one like it before, I feel this is actually an original period item.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I like it too. The name 'Alpacca' was first used for this alloy by the German fancy goods company of Berndorf in the 19th century. The alloy is actually a type of nickel silver that was used by the Germans for many products including the making of the German coin currency the Mark. It was also known to the rest of the world as 'German silver'. That in itself adds credence to this case being a genuine piece imo.

    We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course, and the end cannot be far.
    It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. R. SCOTT.
