Products produced between 1932 and 1962 carried a 2 or 3 digit reference number prefixed by the letter K.
Numbers were not engraved into product, but were indicated on the box and in the consumer catalogues included in every product. Trade catalogues also carry the appropriate references.
Where there is a product in the archive we have photographed it. Where we have no product but do have a catalogue then we have scanned the catalogue page as an image 'holder' until we get an actual product to photograph. Where we have no product or no image then we've posted a 'WANTED' sign. Please contact us through the 'Contact Us' link in the menu bar if you can help.
Our grateful thanks to those who have already contributed images, acknowledgements have been made in product text.
Thes A B C Lettes are made of high-grade hardwood and have a waxed finish so that they feel nice to handle. The letters and numbers are permanently engraved into the wood in colours and cannot be scratched off. Different colours are used for the consonants, vowels and figures. There are "domino dots" on the backs of the numerals for counting purposes. A continuous thin line runs across each block to show which portion of the letter or figure goes above and below the line. This feature is specially recommended by Nursery School teachers.
The set contains 38 letters in ACCURATE script, 38 letters in capitals, numerals 0-9, and "domino dots" 0-9.
