    Very cool. Several on ebay and they are pricey.

    Yes, very nice! Whether they were really used to hold opium or not is debatable for sure. Still very cool to own one! :D

    I loved it both times. How did you acquire it?

    An elderly widow, friend of my sister-in-law had some coins that her husband saved. 12 rolls of Kennedys with 13 40% mixed in, a Peace Dollar & a Morgan and this dark underweight piece. Hinge retracts in for perfect fit. Many of these have a broken hinge or back broken off.
