CANADIAN WHITE BOX MONOPOLY GAME
PATENT APPLIED FOR
c. 1936

Parker Brothers sold a license to manufacture and sell Monopoly games in Canada to Copp-Clark in late February, 1936. Copp-Clark immediately applied for a Canadian patent for the game.

The first games sold by Copp-Clark in Canada bore the legal descripton 'Canadian Patent Applied For'. This legal text was most likely used through November, 1936, when the Canadian patent for Monopoly was approved. After that time, games were labeled with the Canadian patent 362,124.

Described here is the earliest Canadian form of Monopoly in the white box. Shows CANADIAN PATENT APPLIED FOR on the game box, instructions, and game board, with reference to the early Parker Brothers dual American patents.

The race car is about 2/3 the size of the similar piece in an American game.
There are more pieces in this game, I just haven't gotten around to photographing them yet. Still working on that.
But these are the coolest ones.
