We got this set and many other things from an case/box expert(author and WAF moderator), here is what he wrote about this set.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The KVK2 set, this was a veteran purchase originally and came from Jamie Cross. I think for this six or seven (if not more even) years ago. What you have here is a perfect example of a box of sorts adapted for the use in housing an award. The base components are as would be conventionally but it is then fitted into this thicker gauge small box - I have seen this with late war Deumer Luft awards also.

So, essentially you have a late war adapted box for the KVK2, it's not pretty, but very unique and rare in the terms of it can be substantiated in intent/use via the internal base recess - an important set for a serious KVK or case collector, as one of the last late war produced examples of a distinct type. This is why I grabbed it as I knew what it was and it's relevance in the evolution and life span of TR cases.
