Measuring 10 1/2 x 6 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches overall, this wooden lockbox lacks visible makers marks. A spring loaded rig is present inside the box, which discharges a blank cartridge into a gas baffle on the left side of the box. Exact firing mechanism is unknown, but appears to use ball bearings (not included) to fire the device if the box is shifted. Provenance: The Milan J. Turk Collection

Rating Definition:

Good, with mild exterior wear, and a few cracks in the wood. Firing mechanism in good order.
