Brass box looks like to be a nice place to put paper for making cigarretes.

That box has got 33 swastikas on it! Probably a cigarette case to put ready-made cigs in - they never had filters till long after the war, so were shorter than modern ones.

The badge could be a repro - there are a lot of them about...
