The box has a cutesy poem on the underside of the lid, and at the bottom of the lid the name "Allied Pattern and Model Co.” of Chicago is very lightly embossed. Except for the faces of the calendar cards, there is no advertising on the cards themselves.
The cards are in excellent condition, with almost all of the gold gilt intact, "as new" or nearly so . The box is in excellent condition, with very light shelf wear, most noticeably at one of the corners of the lid.
