Re: What is it?
Well, at least 8 have looked at this, and no one has posted. Looks like some sort of cleaning kit, but I really don't have any idea what it could be. Once somebody else nails it, it will probably look familiar.
Y'all be safe now, ya hear!

Let not the rifles of good and free men be reforged into plowshares, but may they rest in a place of honor; ready, well oiled and God willing unused. For if the price of peace becomes licking the boots of tyrants, then "To Arms!" I say, and may the fortunes of war smile upon patriots.

Whatever it is, it is pressure sensitive. Hinge in the front and not the back...that says either foot pedal or detonator to me...the rod could just be a hand extension or an attachment to extend the area of activation by some unsuspecting enemy. Or maybe I am way off, but it is hinged in the front near the wire feed.
*Also there is a hole, midway from front to back that appears to be the insertion point of a safety mechanism.
Freedom is not being able to do what you want, whenever you feel like it. Freedom is being willing to die defending your right to do so.
Those who fight deserve our respect, wether they win or lose.

It is called a time pencil. A timed detonator for sabotage. Originally used in WW2 by special forces, SOE and OSS they were used long after he war.
You crushed the copper part. This broke a glass vial releasing acid which burned through a wire at a very consistent rate (little shake to make sure acid well distributed). Once burned through a spring would be released to detonate the cap and main charge. No batteries or fire.
Different colours signified different delays. This one is white and would give you two hours to make your escape! Enough time to wait for the next bus
