BAYKO Retail Packs - Plimpton Era

Detailed below are the complete parts lists for the BAYKO retail packs from the Plimpton era - they were actually known, as you can see from the picture [below & right], as 'BAYKO Accessory Packs'.
These 3 BAYKO retail packs [left, below] were produced by Plimpton Engineering for just 2 years, between 1958 and 1959.
The 3 Plimpton era Retail [or Accessory] Packs
Pack A was priced at 2 shillings.
[= 10p, 18 cents US, 15 Euro cents].
Plimpton era Retail Packs or Accessory Packs as they were officially known in the Diaplay Box
Pack B was priced at 3s. 6d.
[=17.5p, 31.5 cents US, 26.5 Euro cents].
Pack C was priced at 5s. 6d.
[=27.5p, 49.5 cents US, 41.5 Euro cents].
As can be seen [right, above] they were to be displayed for sale in the printed cardboard cartons in which they were shipped to the retailer.
These cartons held either 12 x Pack A, 8 x Pack B or 6 x Pack C...
...costing the retailer 13/4 [66.5p], 15/7 [78p] and 18/4 [91.5p] respectively from April 8th, 1959.
This means that all three Packs A, B and C yield a profit of 80%.
 
One point of interest can be seen in Pack A, if you click on he table heading link 'A' below...
...if you look at the Crazy Paving, you'll see it's the twin nipple, plain grey version...
...clear evidence that the Crazy Paving moulding was changed some time in the mid 1950s.
