Brand(s): Chesterfield


In the mid to late 20's it was common for auto supply stores to sell branded 201a tubes.

American Auto Accessory Co. is the only known seller of Chesterfield tubes, so are being placed as the OEM. They were sold exclusively in Pennsylvania.

{v1} "Chesterfield" "201-A" with envelope label.[1]


Given the price points for Chesterfield tubes, it's hard to see how large volumes were sold. They were advertised for just under a year, and so are likely scarce.
