George, that photograph captures the difference between the two colours (not shades!) of tan and pale straw exceptionally well

Here is a family picture of the 29C, including the X-mas ornament issued in the early 2000s

If I'm not mistaken I think Georges pair of 29b C boxes are from different suppliers hence the different illustrations, Note the font of the 'No29' on the front of each of the boxes.


Yes it's actually two different versions of the 29B C Box, one in two-tone and one in a single color. Like many B and C boxes, the model number position differs, and this constitutes a variable that has been considered in the several variations list on the box site.

The variations are 29B-C-1 and 29B-C-2, with the latter avalable with and without the "New Model" on end flaps. I just realized I made a typo on the second (29B-C-2b) as it is named "29B-C-2a" !

I have three boxes showing the single colour 29b all with New Model on the end, but none have got the printer name on them.

But the one showing the two tone model has not got New Model on the end, but is printed by Pembroke Abbey.
