Here is an Ansonia THE GUIDE box only.
Again a wood box like the other two shown with inside divided for the watch.
This one is in pretty poor shape as far as the labels are coming apart.
Labels are similar to THE MENTOR except this one is THE GUIDE.
This one, someone put two U.S. POSTAGE TWO CENT stamps on the bottom of the box (one is wrapped around the side). I think these stamps date to 1908-22.
Lightly in pencil, marked on the bottom of the box is:
Ernest G. Knight
West Waterboro, ME.
From Myra H. (?) Wiss
Appears this box, and I assume a watch, was mailed as shown, without any other wrapping or outer box.
Thanks for looking,

    Dave , you'll have to find one to put in the box. I'll keep an eye out for one also.
    I also posted a link in the Dick Tracy watch that shows the complete set. Photo is small, but you can get an idea what to look for in your search for one , maybe.

    Thanks kerry for the appreciation and information. I have a couple of other ansonia's but they don't look right for this box. I think they were the Ansonia Scout's Compass watch and the Ansonia Scout Troop watch.
