It doesn't look constructed to hold a vacuum, so i'd say air, with green felt!

Ok so if none of the above lets try a process of elimination;

Not opened since 1980, so nothing useful then.

Presented in 1980 so could be a gift.

Not a retirement gift as you would be too young

Could be a leaving present.

Without knowing the boxes dimensions I will go for cuff links or tie pin something along that line

A fountain pen (with or without pencil) was a popular leaving present in the past so I'll put that suggestion forward.
