1970s Vintage The Star Washington, D.C. Newspaper Delivery Box

$59.50 $70.00

A vintage plastic newspaper box for the Washington Star Newspaper (1852-1981) which was a DC based daily publication considered to be the "newspaper of record" for the city. The box was made by SC Motor Route Supplies and was used in Eastern Montgomery County Maryland before being removed for storage in 1981 when the paper became bankrupted. Condition is overall good and this is an appealing decorative item with some battle scars and yellowing of the white plastic from sun overexposure. Generally, condition is commensurate with age and use. At this time, there are no other examples of a Washington Star paper box that I can locate for sale.

Typically sized at: 5.5" x 6.5" x 19".
