Here is a gallery of early (1909 - 1916) Number 6 outfits. In the US, The No. 6 outfit was the largest outfit sold until the Gilbert era (circa 1929 - 1939). From 1909 through 1916, these outfits were sold in wood boxes. There were some variations in these boxes, and these pictures are presented to show some of the variations (as well as to show off these outfits!).
The pictures are of three outfits. The oldest, from 1910, is courtesy John Case of Washington State. It is a nearly unused outfit in outstanding condition. The next oldest is from 1912, and is courtesy of Lou Boselli. Lou worked very carefully to restore this set, and has done a beautiful job. When he got the outfit, it was very nearly complete, so he was able to match the parts present for an accurate restoration. The last outfit pictured is from my collection. The parts indicate that it probably is a US outfit from around 1916. The wood boxes were not sold in the US after 1916, although they continued to be available in England.
These pictures are arranged with similar views of the three outfits placed together, so that you can easily compare the boxes (and outfits) with each other. The pictures on this page are as small as I felt they could be for the comparisons, but they are too small to show any great detail. Larger images, in groups by outfit, are available for the 1910 and 1912 outfits, by clicking on the outfit picture. For example, if you want to see larger pictures of the 1910 outfit, click on any one of the pictures below of the 1910 outfit, and you will be taken to a page with all of the large pictures of that outfit. I will not add pictures of the 1916 outfit, because it is not in good shape, it is not complete, and I am not sure it is a US outfit.
