ARTIFACT: Very cool circa 1946 lever and spring operational cigarette case. Early WWII Occupation Period. Inscribed with engraving pen and reads: "TOKYO JAPAN 1946". The case is made of nickel plated brass and may possibly have been manufactured earlier than 1946. It's the only one I've ever seen.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Hand, pen-engraved nickel plated brass.

CONDITION: 7 (Very Fine): Cigarette case shows moderate to heavy surface wear, moving parts, spring, hinge, and lever all in great working condition.

GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
