I love the old Jack matchbooks.  I do not have them all but really wanted to get a thread on these started so I could see what else is out there.  Please send me pictures of any that are different than the ones here and I will get them posted.  Plus send me any dates or information that you may have on these and I will post that too.

 

 

 

Early green label and my oldest matchbook:

I believe these are from the fifties:

 

Fifties - Four Year.jpg     Fifties - Black.jpg      Fiftes - Green.jpg

 

 

 

Next are the Drop by Drop matchbooks.  This is the only full one I have:

 

Drop Full Outside.jpg      Drop Full Inside.jpg

 

 

 

Here are the three versions that I have of the Drop by Drop matchbooks:

 

Drop Retired Outside.jpg      Drop Retired Inside.jpg

 

Drop Ricks Outside.jpg      Drop Ricks Inside.jpg

 

Drop Water Outside.jpg      Drop Water Inside.jpg

 

 

 

This is one version of the black label matches followed by two different insides:

 

Black Label Scenes Older.jpg

 

Black Label Scenes Older Statue.jpg      Black Label Scenes Older Cool Shower.jpg

 

 

 

 

This is the other version of the black label matches followed by four different insides:

 

Black Label Scenes.jpg

 

Black Label Scenes Difference.jpg      Black Label Scenes Distillery Tour.jpg

 

Black Label Scenes Ducks.jpg      Black Label Scenes Friend From Chatt.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

This is the green version followed by two different insides:

 

Green Label Scenes.jpg

 

Green Label Scenes Difference.jpg      Green Label Scenes Friend From Chatt.jpg

 

 

 

This is a pretty common black label box of matches:

Here is a green label box of matches:

 

Green Label Box 1.jpg      Green Label Box 2.jpg

 

 

 

This is a German matchbook with wooden matches inside:

I just found another version.  That makes three of this one.

One says 90 Proof.  This one does not.

I think the box matches are not on here Neil.  Maybe you can educate me here.  I believe those boxes are newer, aren't they?  I see them on eBay all the time.  Are they actually put out by Jack (or a distributor) for bars and such or are they just made by someone for collectors?

I believe those match boxes came from Germany, I think they were official but not 100% sure, they came in a clear plastic case of 9 if my memory serves
