Quite by chance we picked up over 500 pounds of this type, all in these wooden boxes about the size of a quarter-case. It was known to be incomplete and therefore unusable, so we don’t feel guilty about dispersing it. If there is little or no interest (i.e. sales) as a curiosity or collector’s item, we’ll shovel it into the melting pot and reincarnate it as an antique revival.

The photo is representative and probably won’t be the individual box sent. This one weighs 7.5 lbs, but there will be some variation in weight among the different boxes.
