    Default What is this??

    I got this from a friend recently, who claimed it was a match container, belonging to his uncle (who fought for the US) in WWII. Though it definitely resembles a matchbox, with a striking plate included, I have been unable to find a picture, in books or the internet, of a match container from WWII like this one. The container bears no markings other than the word "patent" on the inside of the cover.
    Thanks!
