  1. 1529 Older Minox camera. Black container is an extra casette of film.

  2. I agree regarding the Minox.

    I would say that 1526 is an ink erasing knife, used to scrape awawy mistakes. I don't know what the hook is for though. Not knowing how sharp the blade is makes it hard to guess.

    My other guesses are too goofy to share.

  3. 1525 Scribe for laying out a

    1526 Seam ripper

    1527 Space transportation?

    1528 Drapery hangers

    1529 Spy camera (828) Minox?

    1530 Hanger for some process?

  4. 1528 remind me of the hangers in a dry cleaner shop where the clothes hang on the long conveyor on these.
