Croatian decontamination box, surplus
Sounds very sketchy, right? No worries, these are empy and clean! Or at least empty! This thin tin case is meant to store a soldier's decontamination items in case the mustard gas - or anything the Serbs were using - gets a bit too close. The contents of this case are either used or discarded as they are expired.
We haven't seen a wide variety of Croatian surplus but what little we've encountered is a bit cheap, and so is this box. Don't worry too much though, it works just as it should; provides a splashproof safety for anything kept inside and is quite fast to operate. The tin opens up with a lively (the expereinece might vary from box to box) metal latch, revealing the rubber sealing under the lid and the golden coloured insides of the case.
Inside measurements about 9 x 13 x 4 cm, outside dimensions a few millimetres more. Weight 160 grams. Pretty good size for gold teeth, rings or any other little valuables.
What a Croatian decontamination box holds inside, we have no clue, except on the contents list there's something called "TAMPONI", apparently 4 pieces.
Genuine Croatian stuff
Possibly used, likely stored inside the soldier's gasmask bags, until returned to the stores and the contents discarded. We probably wouldn't recommend this for a lunch box role or anything, but any non-edibles it will keep dry and intact.

The closing lever is kinda unusual, but it holds the lid nice and tight, even better than "conventional" lids would be imo.
All in all a good, interesting-looking, small container that serves the purpose, would totally recommend.
