Crayola Crayons!

The Collector's Colors Limited Edition Tin!

Features the built-in sharpener!
Remember the smell?
This is really a gold crayon; apparently the outside has oxidized somewhat.
I tried this crayon, and lo and behold, the green layer wore off slightly and revealed the gold underneath.
These are the retired eight.

The old-style labels!


  1. That's a great find! Brings back memories of childhood. I always thought the neatest thing about the huge set was the sharpener.

  2. Good find! I have a box I found at the goodwill bins that I bought to compare with pastels and pencils. I need to get back to that.
