What is this?

This metal container was donated to the Lost Rivers Museum and we don't know what it is. The top screws off and there is a slot in the side. Says "ERII Post Office"

  1. ERII is for Queen Elizabeth II. From my research, it appears that you have a "Money Box" (similar to a piggy bank) that is a replica of an English Post Office Mail Box. I didn't find this exact replica but other styles are for sale on the internet. Since your item is only 6 1/2 inches tall, it may have been a key chain that you could place coins in for those pesky parking meters. Interesting item.
