This is an Eloi Pernel Napoleon Coin set with scissors, file and cutter - presumably it is a nail set - but I am not sure. It is on a key ring. My thanks go to an article by Michael Moretti on Cigar Aficonado for the following information. Eloi Pernel reproduce old coins in silver (French, American, Italian or Swiss). These are cut in half and the various surgical steel insets are put in. Often they are cigar cutters. They are apparently very well made - and the work skilled. They have been making these since the 1930's. I think that the retail price new is about $500. This one has French silver marks. Apart from what I have read, I know nothing about these and have never seen one before. Please look at all the pictures. The key ring is marked HM Depose with French silver marks. Ref: 2958 C33/1
