La Central - Classic Matchbox


Location : Pajaritos , Mexico


It was a disappointing visit to the local post office. Apart from an addition to my postage stamp collection of airplanes. The post office here is a small outlet as befits the town and they didn't have a philately section or any stamps such as the Polar stamps that had been requested.

But I did come across a nice matchbox. Now I don't collect match boxes, but a fellow collector had requested me to keep my eyes open for such things on my travels and I am sure that he will be happy to get this.

This is a matchbox released by the La Central company of Mexico and this match box is from their "Classic" collection. you can find more infor about them here.

Hi
I know a boy and his brother who used to collect match box labels in Sulur. They were enthusiastically supported by their M & P .

Hi Velu- very interesting blog with great photos!

i tried to find your email but couldn't...

I wanted to ask if you'd be interested in advertising or sharing my Vintage Postage Stamp jewelry with fellow stamp collectors on your blog.
