Vintage 60s selection box

I found something amazing when I was doing a bit of clearing out (well, re-arranging really)!  Look at this Cadbury's Selection Box from the 1960s!

Can't quite believe the prices - a Flake for threepence and a bar of chocolate for a shilling (5p)! There was a little game on the back.

BUT ... it was what was inside that I had totally forgotten about!  The contents are out of this world!

A selection of press cuttings from 1968 and 1969 all about the moon landings.

I must have been quite a collector - even in those days.  I had totally forgotten about these.

Haven't a clue what I'm going to do with them.  Have to admit that I found the other sides which had news from the time and especially the adverts more interesting this time around!

Funny what turns up - have you found anything interesting recently?  Share them with a link in the comments section and I'll highlight a few over the next few days.

Love, Liz

Hi Liz, how fascinating! I'd be very tempted to put them in acid free wallets in a file that way you can enjoy both sides of the cuttings. I don;t have any cutting from then just very vivid memories of Dad waking me and sitting up with him to watch it on our black & white TV - amazing times :o)
Best wishes as ever

I haven't found anything that I haven't seen for years but I have scrapbook bits and pieces that I pull out now and then. What a fun little box off memorabilia! :)

What a great find, whilst I do not have any actual memorabilia I do have memories of watching it.
