Going through Magic items purchased about seven years ago and found a heavy Okito Box that will hold FIVE Walking Liberty half dollars. Wondering if it’s one of Roth’s boxes? Maybe a slot box? Any ideas would be welcomed. Thanks!

Wondering if it's holding 5 WL because they are soft. How many Kennedy halves will it hold? Finding out if it's a slot would be easy enough.

No pics. It’s a dark copper color a little taller and wider than a Johnson standard brass box.

I don’t have five Kennedy’s to check depth.

I had a slot box at one time and struggled getting the move just right—-so that hasn’t been fruitful.

Likin’ the solid oomph of this box!

Mystery!

Aaron, nope. I never made them out of copper.

Atom3339, note the shaved edge around the lid of the Shufton box. Does yours have that? Also, the Shufton box is a particularly heavy box, holds five coins. I too purchased mine about seven years ago. I'm positive that that's the box you have.

Ray, You’re absolutely right! It’s a Shufton Box! I’m THRILLED to own one!

Going back to review my routines and modify some handlings.

What a great superior Magic product!

Thanks for your help everyone! Smile

I believe Mr. Shufton only had those made from brass. The description you gave sounds like the box has a really NICE looking aged patina on it from all those years. Congrats!
