Traditional cribbage boards have 60 holes. According to my research the earliest known 120 hole cribbage board was patented in 1940 by S. C. Eddy of Kalamazoo, Michigan. This interesting board has a base with two bars of wood that you turn, following the arrows around all four sides to “home”. The directional arrows are in black along with START and FINISH. The bottom is stamped in black “SAVES ARGUMENT” CRIBBAGE BOARD PAT. JUNE 11, 1940 NO. 2204177. This is very worn and hard to read. The patent number is impossible to read if you don’t know what it is. The board is well used and has a real vintage look to it. It would probably polish up well but I don’t want to detract from its charm. One of the bars has the word Start marked in pencil.
There are 5 holes for pegs at each end. There are no pegs but I will supply 10 metal ones that fit very well, 5 gold toned and 5 in black. Measurements are approximately 11” long and 2” wide.
