These were called "Change Makers". They would've been found in department stores to drugstores and hardware stores back in the day. I have collected these and many other knives for years but never thought I would find the original case they were sometimes sold in till last week. The knives sold for around 30 cents a piece and people would buy them for their children or themselves. Keychain knives to all out camp knives, Imperial and it's Hammer Brand, owned the cheaper pocketknife market back in the 1940s through the 1960s. And now I'm the lucky owner of one of their display cases!
