Maybe early twenties box because it is missing the service crest? Has the pusher. no patent written on it?

Fun the paper pattern is different.

It most likely was for a SemiThin (and quite possibly before they had that name). Most of the Verithin boxes are marked Verithin.

Just reading back... Matt & Jenneke--I learn the correct descriptors all the time from y'all. A new one here for me: "meandros" Thanks!
