March 2014 – A Bit of New, a Bit of Interest

It’s been a slow winter, the only new box to report is T032 Thistle Jar Rings, reported round ring box Number 74.

Hopkins catalog

The catalog page pictured is from the A.S. Hopkins Co. of Sacramento CA catalog of 1904.  As far as I can tell, the Ashco is the only known box that has the Hopkins Co. name on it.  Of course, there are several listed that have yet to be found/reported.
