    Default Unknown Brass Case with Markings.

    Hi, i picked this piece up at a flea market in Poland. Each piece is marked with the number 72629 and the tag has a PLAC mark aswell as a pick and shovel with the number 217 on it. It has two locks on it. To me it looks like a compass or pocket watch case. Can anyone give me anymore information on ideas on what this item was for? Any info would be fantastic.

    Thanks

    I believe this is the case for a watchmans clocking in/off piece, the key in the lid would be inserted and turned and it would log the time that the person worked from/to etc and possibly a fixed position that he had to visit at certain times

    The sign on the tag seems to be for mineworkers IMO.
