Crayola 24 Count Gold Medal School Crayons: What's Inside the Box

The No 242 Crayola Gold Medal School Crayons were first made in 1950.  There are not a lot of boxes with the Gold Medal on the front of the box.  I got these from a friend.  It is interesting to note that Crayola was thinking about writing on fabric way back in the 1950's when this box was made.  On the back of the box it describes how to affix the crayon onto fabric in a process similar to one found in their patents for fabric crayons.  

This year also marks the year that Binney & Smith went from a Company to a corporation.  The front of the box says Inc instead of Co.  My oldest box of crayons which I have not posted yet are from the 40's.  It shows company on the crayon wrappers.
