Round Cardboard Jewish National Fund Charity Box Jnf Kkl Israel Judaica:
4.75 inches high, 2.5 inches wide. Paper covered cardboard, tightly sealed metal ends including slot at top for coins/bills. A very, very hard to find JNF box, as because there is no lock or way to empty the contents of the box (like with the tin JNF boxes), the only way to retrieve the money collected was to destroy the box itself --- that's why it is made of cardboard. Because of this, very few examples remain today (this is actually the first JNF box of this type I've seen in my fifteen years of being a Judaica dealer).
What is great about this example is that there is no paper loss at all --- the white spot by the Star of David is not paper loss, but a printing flaw ---. There is water staining but I was advised that someone who restores paper items (like antique posters), could submerse this can is a dissolvent and much of the water staining would be taken off. I don't like to restore old items so I chose not to do that, so I leave it to the buyer.
