    Maybe made in Norway during WWII, they liked such designs. Anyway, a well made item.

    Nice box! But what's the connection with the SS wiking division? I know it shows a wiking ship, but is there provenance? Was it a vet pick up?

    Thanks for the comments guys, the box was sold to me from a house clearance from Germany there are pictures of the soldier in uniform (wiking) all items belonged to the solider in the photographs who fought on the eastern front

    Hi, there also was a Nuremberg eagle on a podium in this box that member Sccrooge bought and already posted, an SS honour ring named Schaaf, plus a half WESTLAND RGT dog tag, so that's why box is 100 % attributed to a Wiking SS guy
    Cheers

    The connection is 35 plus photos mostly showing same soldier in Waffen SS uniform
    2 photos clearly showing him wearing a Wiking and also a Westland cuff title
    Also wearing an SA and IAB which were in the box which was never in any collectors hands..
    An SS honour ring ..that sold for 4000 euros
    Plus a half WESTLAND SS RGT dog tag..
    Also there was 2 SS cantine tokens..
    So although there's no carved runes on the box, I think its certain to say
    Box was owned by a Wiking SS soldier...
    Regards
