This is a Patriotic card case that has been engraved with an Eagle and US Flag.
The original owner was "Alice E. Heidt" and it appears to have been engraved and then stored away for years. It is in pristine condition.
This type of aluminum item was very popular during the Spanish American War of 1898.
I have several other similar patriotic items from the same era-- napkin rings and match holder.
Thanks for looking,
