    Hoppes Counter Display circa 1941

    Camera flash doesn't help pics. Boxes are pretty much mint. There was a beautiful Hoppes cardboard ad that fit into slots on the lid of the display. Still can't find it after we moved.

    Alturas, California...where the west still lives!
    Anyone remember the wording on the OLD Hoppe's #9 glass bottles? "For cleaning rifles, pistols and submachine guns...." Things must have been a little more liberal back then.................
