Bob, don't know what the problem is but I tried 4 times to open the box with negative results each time.

Hi Bob, yes Sir, they are there and that box is quite interesting. Besides being a fancy, well decorated pill box for meds such as Gas-X, etc, I am at a loss except to say it's great Bob!
I have seen items decorated with various and sundry organizational logos before but only in wood. This piece is quite striking and appears to be very well made. Quite a find I would say. Congrats Sir! I hope someone has a definitive answer for you!

Thanks LLoyd
I never though of it as a pill box but its a logical guess. I do not own this. My mother in law was visiting her cousin and she snapped these pics. I would like to own it though. Any idea what these go for?

Depending on size couldn't it be cigarette box or cigar humidor since it has a lock. Mike

I am not sure of the size but after looking at the things in the background I would guess it to be at least 8" square.

I just talked to Mom in Law and she told me that in the box were these index cards with some sort of hooks. I uploaded the pics of the cards.

Bob, quite an elaborate file box for those index cards. Like a pre-Rolodex file box? I know we have index cards for recipes. I guess in the "world" of the TR some SA honcho, as i see a ref to Gruppe Hochland, could have quite easily had such a box made or perhaps one could buy them "off the shelf". I wish I could give you a good guesstimate but all that type box is in all my old Manion catalogs which are packed and not even in this house yet. There were often boxes like that in Manions. I kept those catalogs for just such an eventuality. I of course have all the realized prices as well.
