    Hi, this would belong in the WW1 section, as it is from WW1(1914-1918). It's a wallet for a patriotic women's association, and probably worth under $40.

    Allow me to add a translation of the inside label:

    "War-Billfold
    sold in support of the surviving dependants of those fallen in the war and of the soldiers incapacitated because of the war.
    Patriotic Women's Association, Gandersheim (Harz)
    "

    I believe it is a cigarette case. The left side holds 2 rows of standard size smokes of the period. Like the size of regular Lucky Strikes.
    I am not sure what the crossed straps on the other side are for.

    Sorry, but no: It is definitely not. It's a sleeve for bills/banknotes; it even says so on its inside label. (See my above post.)

    Definitely a wallet. I've seen and owned several early American wallets with this same type of closure. It opens one side, money is put in and when it's opened on the other side the X pulls it though the bars and your money is secured.

    Win a few lose a few.
    I have had metal cigarette cases with strap holders like the left side for butts.
