    1960s Aluminum Cigarette Case

    Picked this up recently at a sale. It looks better in person than in the pictures. There's a round area on the front that you can inscribe your initials. The inside is a gold color. The latch is a metal tab, when depressed pops the case open. I had to tweak this some to make it work properly. It holds closed and pops opens nicely now.

    ALUM-MI-NUM-E- NUM
    "Aluminium is the third most abundant element in the Earth’s crust and constitutes over 7% by mass. In nature however it only exists in very stable combinations with other materials."

    SIR DAVY
    " 1808 ...Sir Humphrey Davy first established the existence of aluminium and named it. In 1821 P. Berthier of France discovered a hard, reddish and clay like soil containing over 50% aluminium oxide near the village of Les Baux in southern France. He called it bauxite and it is the most common ore of aluminium."

      dav2no1, Cool. :-)

      Yeah, the spelling/pronunciation aluminium/al-loo-MIN-ee-um actually makes more sense than the New World spelling/pronunciation aluminum/al-LOO-min-um when you look at the list of periodic elements:

      And so we land today: with aluminum used by the English speakers of North America, and aluminium used everywhere else. Wrap your food and protect your head accordingly.
