Wonderful box of double sided vintage paper letters and punctuation marks. The box says "Large Letter Cards Word Builders" by Kenworthy Educational Service in Buffalo, NY. I'm not sure why they call them "large" since they aren't as large as regular flash cards, for instance, but they are certainly bigger than regular book text. They are probably about 40pt font.

The cards have green text on a white paper and the cardboard box is yellow, green, black, and white. The large sheet of letters does not appear to have been used but it is coming apart at the seams (the letters were intended to be taken apart so all edges are perforated). There are a few little sections that have come detached, but all pieces appear to be present in the box. The paper has aged over time and there is foxing around the edges, and one section of the letters is a tea leaf brown color but that is only on one side (I showed in the photos both sides of the paper letters).

These would be so much fun to take apart and repurpose (perhaps you could even make your own magnetic poetry set!). The box also comes with the original "Satisfaction Guaranteed" card that suggests you "return this slip with sample and your criticism" to Kenworthy Educational Service.

The box measures 6" by just under 4.75" by 1.25". The entire sheet of cards measures just over 14.5" x 15" and the individual cards measure about 1/2" to 3/4" by 7/8".

I will pack these carefully in a box and will send with delivery confirmation.

If you have any questions or would like to see other pictures, let me know!
