I just picked this up. Even though my focus is now on vintage paper items, I just couldn't pass up this...especially since I stole it, well almost. Got it at a neighborhood garage sale. I didn't feel guilty because owner dictated the price ($10) and he was sure that it was a repro since it was in such great condition. I wasn't going to argue...even though I know this particular tray was never reproduced. I wished he had a case of them! Just very little edge wear and light scratches on surface...hardly noticeable.
This vintage stuff is still out there. You just gotta keep looking for it. Actually, I had two of this same tray that I bought at an antique shop about 15 years ago. And at the time, the guy had about 8 of them, all in mint condition, still with wax paper liners between them. He said they were found in a locker inside of an old Sunoco Gas Station...and was told they were given out to customers with every gas fill up.
