    If he would care to show us some identical items, I would be more than happy to take a look at them for him. The box shows age, handling, and a fine degree of skill and workmanship-as well as fine construction. The latch, alone, would not be found on simple cheap tourist junk. It is hardly a piece of tourist drek. Regardless of where Vedran was born, you Have to trust your sources or else you may as well abandon collecting altogether. When you find a source with integrity and reliability, in this hobby, you stick with them. Because a person is unfamiliar with an item, it is not a carte blanche to begin doubting and mocking it.
    Was't mocking old chap.......just my two cents as you Americans say........do calm down.

    The Army cigarette box, if it occurred during the NDH WW2 era, should have such motives:

    Not any "Ustaška Vojnica coat of arms", and other fantasies.
    You can find NDH fantasy objects (Very good workmanship.), at any flea market in Croatia.

    Who said it was Army? And have you ever happened to look at Ustasha cap insignias, etc? There are Many many pieces that sport Only the "U". The "U" is a common 1941-45 symbol. Not everything produced in those years would Have to have every single bit of decoration on it. Now you're just talking absurd.

    Wiliam, read my posts again.
    We are tolking about cigarette box, not about Ustaška Vojnica insignias.

    Vedran....Why, because the cigarette box does not display anything but the coat of arms, does this make it instantly a fake tourist junk piece? You're not making sense....If you would, as I said, care to show me a box full of these hand made cigarette boxes, I would very much like to see them. And perhaps a handful of silver rings, as well.

    Nemaš frke.
