Comments

I had one of these Hopalong Cassidy thermos bottles when I was in first grade in 1952. It came as part of a set with a lunch box. The boxes came in red or blue. The problem was that the latches didn't hold and my lunch dumped and was ruined. My father couldn't fix the latch and I was devastated. I stopped using the lunch box but kept the thermos, which I still have. It's in perfect shape.
I recently came about owning one of these items. Very interesting.
