Here's a strange one. Radiocoin. Reminds me of a motel I stayed in one night in 1960 in West Virginia. Not only were they so cheap that they didn't have TV, the radio they did have had a coin slot. I'll never forget that.
Can't find much history about them. This box obviously dates to the WWII years because it's marked MR for authorized wartime Maintenance and Repair for civilians. Although the 'Radiocoin' is printed rather than stamped, it is not the same quality printing as the rest of the box. Obviously it was applied later. Same with the MR, but you might expect that. The writing on the tube in this box is red and the tube is also marked MR.
Probably an early re-brander or wash house.
