On the left is a tin that formerly held Ideal cartridge case sizing lube. I've never seen the stuff advertised in the old Lyman Handbooks or any catalogs I've seen. Most of what I remember using in the old stamp-pad days came in toothpaste tubes or squeeze bottles.

On the right is a box that Ideal (and later Lyman) used to send sample bullets to people who wanted to try a few before committing to buy a boolit mould. Whatever penciled in bullet was contained in the box is long gone, as are the bullets. Some of the old-timers would save such boxes and use them to hold small parts or screws. I bought whatever was in the box just to get the box.
