This roughly 2-1/2" round tin with close fitting lid used to hold a TAGGER typewriter ribbon, made by MITTAG & VOGLER of New Jersey. The TAGGER name and (nifty!) M&V logo appear on its slightly domed lid, its bottom side also allows which exact typewriter model the ribbon fit into and that it was sold by a store called "WEBER'S" in Galesburg, IL -- also having a few spurious fingerprints presumably of whoever actually *put* said ribbon in their typewriter then kept the metal box. (??)
I don't know how old it is but have to think it is mid 1960's or earlier -- because by then I lived in Galesburg and have *zero* recollection of any stationery/office store there by that name [though I do recall another with a quite different name that was there the whole time I was growing up...) nor do I really remember when or where *I* got it -- it was most likely either "found" in Mom and Dad's writing desk drawer or at Dad's office, one way or the other I've probably had it since the late 70's.
