In the early 20th century salesmen samples were a common item. The idea behind them was simple; salesmen needed a smaller (easily transportable) version of their product to show off to retailers. These samples also enabled retailers to display and demonstrate the features of larger items which needed to be ordered from the manufacturer.In many cases salesman’s samples were well built and highly detailed and came with additional marketing copy pointing out and highlighting important features of the product.
