Vintage 24 Crayola Crayons: What's Inside the Box

Did you know that Crayola used to put 24 crayons in plastic boxes? They changed over to a tuck box in the late 1970's. The colors remained the same, but the box was very different. At this time took I think they started using style and code numbers to categorize their boxes. This is the second 52-0024 box from 1985 because it has a code number -201. The colors in this box are very straight forward, a lot of of dashes and plain names such as red-orange, green-blue. I like the simplicity of this box.
