To all,

I am including here a link to the presentation I gave at the Matchbox Gathering of Friends, last July.

The experience was a lot of fun and it was a pleasure to share about the subject with fellow collectors.

Since the topic is so vast, I limited the presentation to types A through D and I am already in the process of getting the Part II done and present it hopefully next year. It will cover types E and F. For now I cover Regular Wheels, Kings Size, Major Packs and Accessory Packs.

Comments are welcome !

WOW! That's the first word which came up to me when seeing and have read your impressive presentation Pat!

I'm astonished what effort you have made to realise this story of boxes.
I use your boxes site since ever, but this PDF also gives a quick comparison of the various headlines (and details).

My second thought after having read your PDF was: more! more! more! (please)

Couldn't agree more Maarten, and I don't even collect the early 1-75's.
Wonderful effort Pat.

Cheers, Steve

Nice one Pat. I only had time to see the first Three pages (screens), but knew I was in for a treat and look forward to seeing all of it at my leisure.

Wow! Went for a quick look and then totally observed - collection of my boxes scattered across the desktop as I compared to your notes Pat.
Always great to learn from a master and beautifully presented.
Well done and thank you.
