1961/62 Maple Leafs Shirriff Coins


One of the newset additions to the Den is this wonderful item. A 1961/62 Maple Leafs coin set with the display shield. These were issued by Salada Foods in Shirriff potato chips and Salada tea, jelly, pie-filling, and pudding. 1961/62 is the only year the shields were available by order. 


These shields are made of a flimsy plastic and are usually chipped along the edges like mine, if they survived at all. Check out the entire 20 coin set featuring everyone from Mahovlich and Keon to Larry Keenan and Johnny MacMillan.





Below is an ad for the original coins and shields.
