    I came across this odd little item. So sorry bout the picture. I will try get a better shot. Looks like a minature purse. Maybe silver. It has a little badge saying hms renown.
    Looks like the ship had some history. Made in 1916

    Looks like it could well be a period cigarette case to me.

    I think you maybe right ned. The otherside has a loop chain. Looked like a little purse. I will go back and see if there are anymore markings. Might knock them down to $50. I think that may be a good deal

    If you're going back then some extra pic's would not go amiss, inside and out including mm if there is one.
