It is understood that my invention is not lim

various deviations may be made therefrom with
out departing from the spirit and scope of the
appended claim.
What I claim is:
A shallow box constructed of metal compris
ing a base having upstanding integral side and 10
end walls and two partial cover ?aps, one
spective male and female cooperating separable
fastener elements may comprise pre-forrned sep
hingedly mounted on one side wall of said base
below the upper surface of said cover and top

through respective holes Ma and 34b in said re
mounted on the other side wall of said base be
Cl ment shown, said cooperating male and female
separable fastener elements 32a and 321’ are pref
erably integrally formed of the material of said
cover sections we and i8!’ being suitably
stamped, pressed, punched, spun or otherwise
10 shaped from the integral walls of said material.
spective overlapping cover sections l8a and ltb
and suitably secured within said holes as shown
in Fig. 4 with the male element 322‘ projecting
upwardly from the underlying end of the cover
section i8a into the female separable fastener
socket element 32‘) mounted as aforesaid on the
overlapping end of the cover section [8b, it be
ing obvious however that said cooperating fas~
tener means may be constructed in any suitable
manner known to the art.
It is apparent, therefore, that I have provided
a novel type of preferably shallow box con
structed of rigid material providing an attrac
tive box for initial sale as a container for vari

appearance that it may be also used by the pur

said base side wall, said partial cover flaps be
ing of such a length that the free side portion
of one may lie superimposed over the free side
portion of the other, each partial cover flap 20
having downwardly depending integral side and
outer end walls, the sum of the lengths of the
outer end walls of the partial cover ?aps being
substantially the length of said box end walls to
form substantially continuous outer cover end 25
walls, and cooperating separable fastener means
on the free ends of the superimposed partial
cover flaps to detachably secure the free portions
of said partial cover flaps in overlapping rela
