An Old Box and It's Contents (and Discontents)

I found this old handmade box today while tidying. The bottom is decorated with hand cut rubber stamps and the lid with a geometric design featuring William S. Burroughs looking uncannily like Edith Sitwell.
Inside were -

A couple of badges that I think likely came through Counter Productions small press distributors.

An enamel pin promoting Los Bros Hernandez Mr.X comic bought at a Comic Con some time in the 1980s.

A very small enamel pin of a classic anarchist bomb from a book shop near Manchester bus station 

And, incongruously, a pair of (Sir) Paul Smith cufflinks .
