I used to have one of those. They are definitely a Model T era item.

They used to be a semi-common flea market item in the '70's...not so much now. I have a complete kit in near-new condition...a gift from my father...I remember when and where he bought it...Gulfport, FL at the AACA meet in 1974. Didn't realize then that it would be mine one day.

They came in an even bigger tin box, that looks similar. I don't recall the number of boxes inside.
