Cheerio 3 strings for 10 cents
Exhibit #1044
Size14.5 cm x 7.6 cm
Estimated Value$45
OwnerRick Brough

Three Cheerio Egyptian Fibre strings for 10 cents. The price and number of strings included in this string pack, and the fact that it is made in the U.S.A. (U.S.A. Duncan bought Canadian Cheerio in 1954) suggests that it is from the mid 1950s to very early 1960s.

See the actual Cheerio District Champion patch depicted in the lower right on the front of the pack. The boy pictured on the front of the pack is wearing a v-neck sweater vest with the Cheerio District Champion sewn on the front.

Compare this red background version of the string pack design with the blue background version.

Made in U.S.A. by Cheerio Toy Inc., Buffalo, New York.
