This ice bag, like you see in the old B&W movies, is in the original box. A 9'' checked bag has a plastic cap. The top of the box has the announcement,''War emergency compound. This product is made under limitation arising from the conservation of crude rubber and other material.'' Rationing. People did without during WWII for the effort. This older 40's piece has a real salute to the War effort on the packaging. The box is in good 65+ year old condition.
