Period Turf stahlstecknadeln (sewing needles/pins) tin. This one is 1920s-1940s; later ones tend to have some post war markings. It is in OK condition with some wear and light rust. Whether you need a correct tin for needles or need a place to store some other small items, this is a good option. It measures about 3 1/8" by a little over 2 1/4"
