      Intriguing... The logo is Bayerische Metallwarenrfabrik Nürnberg, i.e. the Bavarian Metalware Factory. Not that it helps very much.

      ...and so it is. apparently. Thanks junkcollector and thanks auto55 for showing!

      "Early 1970's piece made to look like a number bar of gold. Solid with gold plating. 3 1/2" long and a little over 1 1/2" wide. Copies have been made but this is the original design. It is differentiated from the copies by the .986 (not .999) quality stamp on the gold bar.

      Has two opening mechanisms below, one to pry and one to fit over a crimped cap to turn it (called a Schraubverschluß in Germany). "
