Crayola Product Line by Year

 

 

Previous Year                                                                                                                     Next Year

 

                                                                                    1939

 

1939 Tiny Tots and the No 97 and 97A no longer in the lineup.  This year marks the introduction of No 33 and the

rare and elusive No 52.  The No 52 is the largest color offering by Binney & Smith to date.  It incorporates all of their

standard colors as well as all of the Munsell colors.  This combination of colors is never seen again because when they

later put out the No 48, they do a lot of renaming of their color lineup.  They would not exceed the size of this box

until the No 64 would come out 18/19 years later!
