Original - Algodón, Metal - En excelente estado

Beautiful and extremely rare bronzed metal poison container of the Italian Social Republic’s “Black Brigades” with authenticity expertise!
The top of the lid features a skull with a dagger between its teeth, while the bottom features an embossed geometric design representing the letters “F R”, which stand for the initials of the soldier who owned it.
Only three pieces of this exceptional container, with different initials, are known to exist!
The most intriguing part of this object is inside, where a cylindrical space is clearly visible, protected by a layer of insulating material (cotton), which stored a glass vial containing poison mixed with an extremely powerful sleeping pill to be used to avoid being captured by the partisans. Some historians who have viewed the object suggest that it may have contained a vial of morphine to be used as a "last resort" in case of need.
Unlike the Germans, who used cyanide for this purpose, Italians used a very powerful sleeping pill that subsequently induced respiratory arrest. 
Both hypotheses are credible, nevertheless this item is RARE and EXCEPTIONAL and can be definitely be classified as unique.
