A fine quality fully marked 900 silver cigarette case with attractive line decoration, attached to the lid are the original owners initials and a superb quality miniature of the rare Gau Sutetenland badge, these are both held in place with tiny matching rivets. The small silver catch that opens the case on a spring hinge is maker marked and silver marked, 900 J.S 3 X, these same marks are also stamped into the interior of the lid and the base.The interior is still fitted with two cloth straps for holding the cigarettes in place, the interior base has an interesting four line presentation inscription, SUTETENFUHRER JULFEST 1943, STABS DER GAULEITUNG SUTETENLAND, it is interesting to note that the first awards of this rare Gau badge was made in December 1943 so this cigarette case was probably awarded at the same time to one of these early party fighters.
