This wonderful new old stock package of two yo-yo strings hails from an old-time New York toy store. Alas, it is no longer there! Each package hails from the 1960s and holds the actual strings made of Egyptian Fibre Cord. The original package sold for 15¢ - can you imagine.
The 5-3/4 by 3-3/4 inch glassine bag has been folded so that the contents stay safe inside, but, believe it or not - that has not affected the integrity of the bag or the contents inside!
The front of the bag reads:
EGYPTIAN FIBRE CORD YO-YO TRICK STRINGS No. 215
2 for 15¢
The Kind the International Royal Yo-Yo Champions Use
Manufactured Exclusively by ROYAL TOPS MANUFACTURING CO., INC. L.I. CITY, NEW YORK 11101
There's a 2-color picture of a yoyo, marked

On the back, the bag reads:

Under the printing, there are pictorial instructions for special tricks that are enhanced by these strings, like Walking the Dog, Around the World, Over the Falls, and more.
