                                                                                    1940

 

1940 Only a couple of changes from the prior year.  The Perma 85 finally switches from the Color Wheel design to the

borders design introduced to most boxes back in 1935.  Rubens changes up their 24ct box to put Mr. Rubens picture

at the top.  The Gold Medal line redesigns back to the square design they used back in 1934, but with totally different

fonts and design.
