Not a matchbook but probably of interest to the matchbook collecting hobby as it is likely quite an early Diamond Match Company product box.
Nice old turn of century match box is 3 3/4" x 2 5/8" x 5/8". Close date anyone ? Curious why they were brand labeled as Oshkosh Matches. To compete with other Oshkosh matches or to retain an Oshkosh Match companies customer base after a buy out ? Minnie Austin is the old fountain pen script style typical of the Victorian era on the back.

    I just commented on your crate with same markings. This is the box that most likely came packed in that crate. Note the "No. 2" (box size) on both the box and crate.
