Marineland of the Pacific
View-Master Test 3 Reel Set
1960s - vintage
Description: From the Portland View-Master factory archives comes this uncommonly preserved test reel set.
Common practice was to file all test reel sets, each in a marked envelope into the archive files.
But, occasionally, and for only very brief times, some test reel sets were placed inside a test run of the outer packet jacket (jacket was printed and die cut, but flaps were not sealed, and a small piece of tape at the bottom back of the jacket held it all together - reels and booklet if printed was placed inside). It was a different means of storage, but evidently soon abandoned to the usual practice.
This week, 3Dstereo is offering four of these sets of test reel sets from the View-Master archives. Here is Marineland of the Pacific. Jacket remains in pristine condition.
Reel: test reels - like new
Jacket: pristine w/ aforementioned tape
