A&BC Gum counter display box packing note

This is a packing note taken from a 69' Star Trek counter display box. Has anyone seen one of these before?

No, I've not seen one before, but presumably all boxes would have had one so I'd be surprised if they were unknown.  Are they known from other sets?

Graeme.

Please see my Partridge Family box in the Gum card gallery.

I guess most were thrown away by the shopkeeper before going into the sweetshop window/counter.

ah ha Graham thx. Thx all and yes I kept all of them from the boxes I had. One item I have lost as I remember was a letter from A&BC to a retailer if I remember about some sort of offer. This is over 40 years ago though and I know I filed it for safe keeping and cannot find it anywhere. arghhhh!!!!! :-[

Hi, you obviously know the provenance of this item, but as somebody who has never seen one before, how would you be able to tell which series it came with? Are there any marks to look out for to be able to id the sets/boxes they would have been packed in? Great, unusual, item.

Having looked at several I don't think you would unless you had access to the A&BC records from the time......
