I know this isnt twisty, but it is a cubic puzzle. At work (I'm a maintenance man at an affordable housing apartment complex), An older tenant from Iran is moving out and put the stuff he doesn't want to take next to the dumpsters; records, a mirror, etc. Anyway I was picking up trash around the complex (about 1000 candy wrappers), I found this neat little Japanese puzzle box bank. It looks exactly like the top box here. except mine is parquet(Butter!{a joke for the older members here}), see the tiny bit of history on it. It has P.D.G. MADE NI JAPAN(sic) stamped inside. I think someone picked from the guys stuff and then decided that they didn't want it so they dropped it there.

As soon as I picked it up I knew it had to be a puzzle box and figured it out quickly. I like all kinds of puzzles but I was wondering if someone here would appreciate it more than I and might want to trade for it. If not, it's a decent story isn't it?

I can post actual pictures if anyone desires.

Now back to your regularly scheduled TWISTY PUZZLES...
