                                         An Attempt at a Concise Checklist of

                                 MATCHBOX CARRY CASES

This list only deals with "classic" suitcase-like carry cases for the 1-75 series without any play environments.
Environmental play cases, cases for series other than 1-75 and cases of other shapes (toolboxes, steering wheels, robots,
garages, trucks, racing cars etc.) are therefore excluded.

All cases described in this list contain plastic trays with twelve compartments each, except for those early types with
cardboard trays as mentioned below.

All cases but the two oldest and the most recent US issues are said to have been made by Lesney Products & Co. Ltd. or
Matchbox International Ltd.
