    This is from a friends estate and I do not know what to call it...does it have a name? It is small (approx. 2 1/8") across the top. It is made of wood, but the lid is some kind of metal. You have to remove the screw from the top in order to open it. Inside are small nails, which I assume are brad nails, but am not sure (they don't have heads on them) The outside of the box has numbers 20 1/2, 21 1/2, 22 and 23 etched into the wood. I'm just needing to know what to call it so I can sell it for the family.

      These are phonograph needles. Probably came from a repair shop that dealt with the old Victrola's (and others) Check out "antique phonograph needles" on Google or eBay. The box is probably hand made. Neat piece of history.
