Description: Yet another classic piece of Auböck design which is getting harder to find.  This rarity has a full color photo in the Kois book on page 87.  Impressed with the correct Auböck signature under the lid in the aluminum chassis of the tin.  Makes a great box for storing coins, jewelry or other smalls.  An example sold at the 2016 Wright auction almost doubling its high estimate.

Condition: Very good to good.  The pigskin shows wear and some stains from regular handling and use. The inner aluminum liner has a small dent in the body and its edge shows some wear.
