Description

Cardboard carton containing 5 boxes of punched cards. Four of the boxes contain standard blank cards (model 5081). Three of these boxes are full, one almost full. One box contains half standard cards and half, some kind of sales demonstration card headed "What the PUNCHED HOLE can do" and a single punch (model N79087). The single pre-punch effectively ruins the card for normal use, so these must have been only for sales handouts.
