|The pictures below show larger front and back views of all (3) Different Old Word and Number Slide Puzzles in this lot. These slide puzzles are not dated and the years that they were made are unknown. Two of these are made of plastic and one is enameled metal.|
The first puzzle pictured below is on a bead keychain through a charm loop at the top. It has red and blue numbers (1 - 20) on a yellow base. On the back is an identification or ID label or sticker with a place for Name, Address, City, State, and a License Number. It also states ''PATENT PENDING''. The puzzle works but the base is warped from heat.
The second puzzle has white lettered squares and a black base. It is still on its original advertising card that pictures different combinations of words to create. The puzzle appears to be in excellent condition, but the card has wear, tear, and creasing (see the back view below). The card is also marked as follows:
ENTERTAINING - EDUCATIONAL
IDEAL FOR GIFTS, GRAB BAGS,
PARTY FAVORS & PRIZES!

The third puzzle here is made of metal with alternating black & white painted or enameled numbered squares. This puzzle is not marked but it is a long time, well known puzzle called ''FIFTEEN PUZZLE''.
All three of these puzzles for one price! To judge the sizes the advertising card measures 5-5/8'' x 4-5/8''. These appear to vary from good to excellent condition as pictured. Please see the notes above.
