**Just as a heads up...I will be removing this listing by the end of this week (first week of October). I prefer to sell on etsy, but I will be putting it on ebay then.**

I've learned quite a bit from my research into the bizarrely interesting world of ouija boards and talking boards. I believe this board and solid planchette dates from the early years of 1915-1918. This board has the smiling moon face on the top left, the stamped William Fuld 1226-1228-1306 N. Central address on the back. And his name on the front bottom center is written in black (it was changed to red in 1919).

For its age, this wooden board looks to be in great shape. There are some scratches and very light cracks that do not go through to the other side. The graphics seem good and clear, with only a bit of fading, probably since the finish to the earlier boards was not as thick. The "Made by William Fuld, Baltimore, MD, U.S.A." has some lines above and below it. Please use the photos as a reference. I tried to take close ups of the corners and edges where there was the most wear. The board measures about 22 x 15 inches. The wood planchette measures about 5 3/4 x 4 inches.The planchette is also in very good condition. It has three small legs and the felt from one of the bottoms is missing. More photos are available upon request. Ships with insurance.

"This front of this board shows us a subtle but significant change. All previous Ouija boards depict a full black moon in the upper left hand corner and a crescent moon with a star in the right upper hand corner. Here, William replaced the full black moon with a smiling moon face. This is the first of many cosmetic changes the Ouija board would undergo. Early models of this board came with solid pointer planchettes, but later models introduced the new windowed planchette that rested over the letter, number, or word being pointed out. Its construction and shape remained the same. As with the board above it may have a label pasted on the back or it might display stamped directions. It also may or may not have William's name on the bottom center front. Manufactured circa 1915-1918."
