Hi,any chance of solving the mystery of what this is exactly please? Also are there any collectors of these?It belonged to a fisherman in North Shields fish quay in the north-east of England and my wife's former husband inherited it. We would love to know if its worth anything,the case isn't split and is wooden,the tools are unbroken and are slightly rusting but would polish up as they look like proper tool steel,the badge thing and what looks like a 'Meccano' spanner were in as well!
