This in an incredible lot of items, featuring the extremely hard-to-find1939 World's Fair Standee from Colgate-Palmolive, the original envelope mailer to Bertha Drug Co. in Bertha, Minn., and four of the original handout sheets, on newsprint, that gave details on entering the contest and were giveaways to customers interested in the promotion.
The standee, as shown, is in excellent condition, with just a bit of blunting on the 'W' in World's Fair (see photo) and in a couple of other areas. Note that the standee has not been used. Also note that the cardboard piece attached to the back is of a different cardboard material than the standee itself, but it is our belief that this is how it originally was made. Still, take a look at the photos.
The envelope shows some small edge tears and light overall wear, but remains quite nice.
The individual sheets are, for the most part, in quite nice condition. They have slight yellowing, but seem to remain supple. There is a small tear in the top of one of the sheets and some slight unnevenness on the left edge of another sheet, toward the bottom. Still, these are quite nice and we assume quite rare also.
Hake's Guide to Pop Culture Memorabilia shows the standee alone, in this condition, somewhere in the $700 to $800 range. There is no listing for the mailer or giveaway sheets which are included here.
