Box of 6 MARPLES 2200 Try Squares or Joiners Squares - NEW OLD STOCK *SOLD*
A box of 6 unused 6 inch MARPLES 2200 try or joiners squares.
New old stock from the 1970s in its original card box packaging with full trade label.
Each square retains its original factory finish with blued steel blades and 'tested for accuracy' labels.
Brass plated stocks with 3 diamond fixings.
The stocks are marked 'No2200 6 IN' with the MARPLES trade mark.
Interestingly this box appears to have been packed as the production process of the squares had undergone a change. Five of the squares have hardwood (probably mahogany) stocks and the brass plating is fixed with 5 screws, the other has a rosewood stock with no visible screws. This rosewood square was at the bottom of the box indicating that it was the first to be packed. Labels and trade marks are the same on all six squares.
There is some discolouration to the finish in places, please see the images.
Very unusual to find a full box in unused condition, one for the collection.
