Circa 1928 Long Chew Gum Box
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,350
Display box of Long Chew Gum ("World's Longest Chew"), issued by the Clark Brothers Chewing Gum Company of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, containing seventy-one unopened wrapped sticks of gum, plus thirty-one small premium rings. As the colorful back-panel display proudly proclaims, these rings were given out "free with each stick of Long Chew gum." A 1928 copyright appears on the box. The box (4.75 x 8.5 x 1.5 inches) has imperfections (including a torn side flap) but still has tremendous display value, especially the bottom portion of the box (intended for store display) in which the gum packages sit and the detached but present colorful back-panel display. The wrappers of the unopened packs are also extremely colorful. The gum sticks remain in their original issued state, in perfect Mint condition, looking exactly as they did in some eighty years ago. The premium rings are in Excellent condition. Reserve $500. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $2,350
