    Default Snuff box

    I've got this little piece in my collection of memorabilia but never sought to find out a bit more about it. It seems obvious that it is a snuff box/holder, made of brass and about 2 inches across but other than that I know nothing of it. Has anyone any insight as to whether they were just used by officers? Whether Heer/Luftwaffe/Kriegsmarine had different types of holders etc.... Any info would be gratefully received. Thanks. Mark.Click image for larger version.

    I have to agree.

    There was no such thing as an officially-issued snuff box in any uniformed service.

    The design of this one is based on the circular belt buckle worn by NSDAP political leaders.

    It's the type of stuff seen a few years ago in the Polish flea markets
