What a collectible!
Please take the time to read below so you know what you are buying:
This classic hard to find Metal PLAID Lunchbox is considered to be one of the rarest and most valuable Lunchboxes of all time.
More information on the rarity of this box can be found at this link.
The Lunchbox is from 1954 and is made by ADCO and is clearly embossed made in the USA on the bottom.
ADCO made many of the real old and original Lunchboxes like Davy Crockett and Lone Ranger,
and soon after this Licensed Walt Disney productions lunchbox was made, ADCO lost the copyright permission and stopped making this lunchbox.
So this box in any condition is a great find.
The box is made of a bright orange border, with yellow sided and Disney Animation Lithos of multiple colors,
and a nice bright and clean white enamel inside.
The entire box is made of litho enameled metal, with a nice Clear metal latch and a metal handle with a Mickey Face Medallion on top.
One Side has Mickey Mouse heading to School with Huey Dooey and Louie on a Bus cart being pulled by Pluto.
The second side has donald Duck with Huey Dooey and Louie having a picnic about to ruined by a bull.
Overall as a whole the box is aged as a 64 year old lunchbox should be and is in very good 7 out of 10 condition.
The exterior is is really nice shape shape and is very clean with nice bright colors, and mostly suffers wear
around the edges and the borders.
The DONALD DUCK side is really beautiful and only has a few minor scratches and the border edge wear.
The Mickey side is nice too but it has more significant wear to the edges and the Triplets have a bit of old marker on the face.
The inside is very clean, again with some small scratches and 3 minor spots of rust in the deep section.
The inside does have some very minor crayoning which I have 95% removed with windex and elbow grease, but it still need a bit more wiping.
All Hinges and latches are in great working condition.
The Yellow side panels and in Terrific shape with the "This belongs to our Pal... Mickey and Donald"
