Paper Sleeves Used Over The Years
This has no zone in the address. That makes it pre-1943. This large sleeve was from a 39 1/2, which is a model I have never seen in a catalog. So I added the shears to my collection.
Also pre-1943 but for a smaller shears.
This is probably pre-1948. No mention of the 100 years.
This has a zone on the back (but not on front), so definitely made after 1943. The style of the pictured kitchen shears ended in the late 1940s. And no mention of the 1948 centennial.
This one has a 1948 date on it. Most likely a supply was printed that year.
The zone in the address puts us into the 1943-1963 period. I presume the switch to white paper took place in the 1950s. The shears in the sleeve was then in a labeled box.
The Zip code here puts us after 1963.
In the past the shears in the sleeves were then put in a labeled box. To reduce costs that stopped. Now sleeves had to include the model.
