American Matches Pencil Giveaway Panel

Hey folks!  I ran across this great old giveaway retail insert the other day.  I always enjoy finding retail giveaway panels because of the enthusiasm displayed in the graphics to get your attention.  This bold one from American Matches is no exception.  It's 6" x 3" and looks to be about the size of the larger boxes of matchsticks.  So I'm guessing it fit right inside the top of the matchbox interior pull-out drawer.

Help me out Brian, I'm not familiar with these and don't have a sense of what size this is and how it was used. Was this located inside the match box?

Thanks for reminding me Mark! I forgot to give the dimensions (I added some content to the last of the post).

You'd have to use a lot of matches to get your "4 Lead Pencils"!...with your name stamped in gold no less! Nice post!

Somehow that reminds me of how kids used to chew on the ends of their pencils. Do they still do that? Do they still use pencils? If I had kids I would know this stuff.
