Metallic Effects Crayola Crayons

Crayola made it's first box of metallic crayons in the 80's. In the US they released a box of 8 containing gold, silver and copper. In Canada they released a test box with new metallic colors in it.

I bought the Metallic Effect crayons off of eBay when I picked up some more GemTones and Silver Swirls.  I was a little disappointed when it came and it only contained silver, gold and bronze.  It seemed a little silly to me, but I am glad to have the box, because it is one of the first times that Crayola decided to use the name Metallic, even if they were not new crayons.
