Just a quick comment. What is with the price people are asking for the 72 count boxes of Crayola crayons from the late 50's to the 70's. First saw a set from the mid 60's, the seller had the opening bid set at $200. Then a set from the late 60's, it was new and still shrink wrapped but a $500 buy it now price? Then a used set from the mid 60's for $350. Now a lightly used set from 1959 for $350. Except for a couple color names from the first series of these, none of the crayons are rare or hard to find. I have 3 sets, all with unused crayons and booklets, the most I paid for was $35 and that was only a few years ago. I didn't pay that much for one of the hardest crayons to find, my Oprah Winfrey The Color Purple crayon. The only crayon in these sets that I don't have is the hard to find 2 word Golden Rod crayon. I would be damned if I would pay what these people are asking to get one.
