In reply to Kevin McElhone's request. I have an "O" model Capitol
Cuff box, which has the same movement as the "A" model. The serial
number is 07 on the baseplate. The dimensions of the cuffs are
4-1/4 x 3-3/8 x 2-1/4 inches, which is the same as the "A". (See
I have 12 cuffs and the titles and numbers are listed. However,
some numbers or words are non-decipherable.

The picture inside the lid is the same as shown on page 137 of Bowers'
Encyclopedia. I will send a photo of it along with the same picture
in an Olympia box I have and also an oil painting of the same picture.
I have been trying for some time to find out more information on
the picture. Hope someone can identify the artist and the subject.
I think it is a young lady harvesting wild rice, perhaps on a lake in
Minnesota, eh? Maybe some MMD'ers can help.
Hope I have been of assistance.
