Late 1960's Valve box

Changing to the bolder, but simpler black and blue design with the "Big-M" logo - this is quite effective.  The now common customer panel is present.

Early 1960's Valve box

One of the far better wrap-around designs using three simple colours (red, blue and black).  During this period AEI used the same design with Ediswan valve boxes.  Side four is stamped with the valve details. Impossibly pointed valve top would get easily broken off.

1950's Valve box

Ah that's better the good old Mazda logo. What lovely indented corners reminiscent of older times.  I also have samples of sides 3 being blank (like side 2 without the info sticker), and other samples where side 3 has an info sticker covering what looks like a guarantee.
