Hollifield Practice Rod Indicator

Box is Empty

The label on the outside is still attached, pieces of the label are missing (please see picture). Label has what looks like water stains or discoloration. The lid also has small white spots, they could be small paint splashes or water spots? The metal hooks and hinges are rusted. Inside label is in tact and attached.

This box was found in our basement when we moved in 24 years ago. Up until a week ago it was still on the shelf in the basement. Overall the box is dusty and dirty from being in the basement all these years.
I have carefully dusted the outside off.

Thought someone might find it interesting, as I did.

I have tried to describe this as best I could. Please look at the pictures carefully, and feel free to email me with any questions.

Enjoy !
