Small, wooden box with French Indo-China wax seals on outside and containing 33 small copper coins from Cambodia, with letter from Mendel Peterson about their origin and the rescue of this item from France in WWII. 178 grams overall, the box 5" x 1-3/4" x 2-3/4". Cute little coins (uniface) and box (very rustic and simple, but with elegant seals in red wax), pedigreed to the late and famously treasure-friendly Mendel Peterson, who was the curator of the Smithsonian in the 1950s-1970s.
