I was thrilled to find this mottled green plastic (not bakelite) tackle box: 12"x5"x5". Marked "Beachcomber" on the black handle. It is from the 1950's and was manufactured by Plano Molding, Co, (Plano, Illinois). Love the colors and the grey levered tray inside. It was used and definitely needs a good thorough cleaning before I put my other plastic jewels inside. I found this at a junk store in Jackson, CA (in Northern mining country: not on fire thankfully) a few months ago - priced right - in fact less than similar ones on ebay.
Fort Apache - I am sure you have a few of these too. Hope you all enjoy this funky item. My favorite color! and, appeals to my "gotta have it because it's pretty AND functional".
