The lid on this Perfect Golf Tee retail display box is designed to open up and then bend in half, so the front flap will tuck and lay flat on the top of the rear two tee boxes. When this is done, the front half of the lid will stand up vertical with the golfer in the semi circle at the top.
Inside the point of display retail box are 30 individual tee boxes, each containing a circular rubber tee stand and corresponding nail used to keep the tee in the ground after the ball is struck. Each of the individual tee boxes acknowledge that these tees were patented on 2-6-1927.
The auctioneer opened a half dozen of the individual boxes to check on the contents. The original tees are there, but the half dozen tees viewed were all a little out of shape and the rubber has turned rock hard during the past 93 years. The tees, however, still display fine (as shown in a few images) and this lot is more about a large retail box that is completely full with its original tees. Retail point-of-purchase display boxes from the 1920s are extremely rare.
