This box contains 23 vintage retro wooden 'comet' checkers(one red is missing from the set), made by Halsam in the 1950s. They are a bit worn and well used, but would be perfect for mixed media projects and display.

The box is well loved-there are little peace signs drawn into the circles on the front of the box with pencil. One of the red pieces has been chewed on by the family pet. The history here is palpable.

Each checker measures 1 1/8" in diameter and is 5/16" thick. There is a globe and three stars on one side and a circle and dot pattern on the other.
