Another "what is it ?" thread

I found this little cleaning kit this morning while searching through boxes for something else. I have no idea where it came from, or what it is for, or if it has any value. If anyone can provide some input, it is appreciated.

These pop up from time to time. Saw one sell on fleabay for $50 or so. Early cleaning kits that probably started with the FN49 (IE pre plastic)

The Israelis and British also had kits in little metal and later plastic boxes. A lot of FALs didn't have trapdoors in the butts for cleaning kits.
