The other day I was using a Bic stickpin, and was impressed at how unchanged it was from when I first encountered it as a “new thing” in the 60s as a schoolkid. Perhaps the specific plastic used might be slightly different, but overall, the product - including the logo - seems just about unchanged. Made me wonder what other products have remained similarly unchanged for as long or longer.
I specify “branded” objects so as to exclude more “fungible” objects such as pins, paper clips, nails, etc. For purposes of this thread, I’m looking for objects that bear a brandname or are otherwise readily distinguishable from similar products from other manufacturers.
I imagine there might be some pencil brands that are unchanged. I guess I would have to try to pull up images of vintage yellow #2 pencils.
I thought of Ball jars. The glass part has likely been unchanged FAR longer than the Bic pens, but I suspected there might have been some changes to the lids.
Any other suggestions?
