    I found this at a Goodwill and paid 10 cents for it. So I am curious about its use and it also sounds like something is inside. If I shake it, it has the sound of something hard inside, not the sound of metal though today and something small of course, maybe a one quarter to a third inch in size from the sound of it. What would be inside? Why the odd bottom? Is it for incense? Does that bottom open up? It does stay sterling 4 950 on the bottom. Little slotted metal piece at the very bottom rim on the backside to suggest it might slide open.

    Unsolved Mystery

      Could it be a salt shaker?

      I will open it, tomorrow most likely and post what is inside so we all know. I will ask my son to video tape it, in case it is a real surprise. (Not that I intend to post a video.)
