Portland Star Match Brick (C538)



Here is another quite rare opportunity. An unopened brick of wood match strips with complete outer label. A few nips and one minor edge tear on the paper package but still all intact with all text bright and readable. Inside there is eight bundles of strips containing five strips each. The standard match strip had 17 detachable matches. Although matches did come in many forms and containers during the war, this is the classic iconic matchstrip associated with the period and a must for any collection or display. Very, rare to find an intact brick, unopened. Single strips routinely sell for $15-20 each and often more. The label on this package by itself is rare and collectible. A period litho of the factory is included in the photos.(Must be shipped ground transport)
