Anyone in the mood for a roll...

1902's ANTIQUE V RARE ADV. ORIGINAL Pathé WAX ROLL WITH PAPER BOX - MINT

If this cylinder and box is "MINT", I have some other "mint" moldy, unplayable Pathé wax cylinders that I'll let go cheap...

The contents are in terrible to useless condition, but the box actually looks surprisingly good. Any value to Pathé concert cylinder BOXES without the record?

I'd say minimal. The number of Pathé boxes available far exceeds the number of playable cylinders in my experience.

Yes, as you can see from the picture, Pathé cylinder boxes were a lot more durable than Edison or Columbia boxes. Unfortunately I don't know of anyone reproducing Pathé Salon or Intermediate cylinders, which are in between regular and Concert size.
