A tip...the brand name has the ´s...I think this letter was removed late 1960´s years...so your box is before that era...

I have the same box which contained a dated warranty paper, the date on it is 21/12/37. It had a green striated lever fill lifetime balance and pencil, with the flat ball clips.

Take a look at this article by our moderator Jim:




 I don't know if yours held a Crest or one of the other models of that period. Mine is a little more upscale and held a high-end first year Crest set. They seem to have been used in the late 30s to mid fortiesDSC_0129.thumb.jpg.b057f5ac2fb4bbaa8f5a54dd2e64b2f7.jpg

Proper pen for this box will have gold trim (as opposed to silver).

Roger, could you elaborate. I'm not understanding.

Okay. Your answer threw me at first, but now I get it. The silver-trimmed box held those less common silver-trimmed gray or green striated sets. So OP's box would be a rather uncommon survivor from the late 30s or early 40s.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.
