I found this box more than 10 years ago from an owner that advised that he had found it more than 40 years before then. Needless to say, this is an ultra rare candy box in remarkably good condition. This would be extremely controversial today. I would think this would be a must find for one who collects Black Americana and Memorabilia.
There is a statement on the end of the box that says Guaranteed by National Candy Co. Under the food and drugs act, June 30, 1906. My idea of condition and your idea of condition may be totally different.
So I let the photos do the talking. Questions are always accepted and encouraged.So you be the judge as to whether an item is original and genuine. Be sure that it will work for your application.
