Description

    Very Rare 1909-1911 Colgan's Chips Store Display Box Plus Tins and Cards Collection (8 Items). Colgan Gum Co. gave to the hobby cards where corner wear was never going to be an issue. Today, Colgan's Chips have a solid following among collectors who appreciate the challenging of putting together sets and their unique shape. Offered is a very rare Colgan's Mint Chips retail display box! The approx.. 7-3/4 x 3-1/2 x 5" box was made to house twenty of the "Sanitary Metal Box" or tins that were sold for 5-cents each. The side panel and inner top panel have the company catch phrase - "The Gum That's Round." This is one of only two of these counter display boxes we are aware of. The close to unique box does show it's age. Technically FR for corner splits, overall wear and a partially separated top panel. The box has card board filler to keep it's shape. Also included are six original Colgan's tins: Two Green empty tins (Both EX-); Three Violet empty tins (All EX, with heavy faded colors); One Green tin with E270 Tin Top Atkins card (PR) and one E254 Frank Baker (FR).

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
