DISCOVERED

You know how it is?

You've been collecting for years and you think you've seen & know about  (almost) everything.

And then................... something unexpected turns up.

Thanks to this chap who pointed it out.

 

 

It looks like just a normal Penelope box - same front, back, bottom & top................But then we get to the sides - pictured below.

Obviously the drawings here are done by a non - artist.

It is not a prototype or sample as it bears a shop price of 17/6 written in pencil.

Box type A I would reckon to be an early version, probably withdrawn in favour of Box type B - which is the more often seen version.

 

Anyone know for sure?

 

Anyone got a Box type A in their collection? Send me some photos. Please.

Everyone off to the attic then............................
