Default Goudey gum/ oh boy gum/ patterson candy canada

Just purchased this large advertising crate. Was wondering if someone is able to help me date the crate. Early 30's?

Dimensions:

30 inches long
21 inches wide
24 inches high

Thank you for all valued opinions.

I did an article a while back on the early pre-baseball card days of Goudey.

https://jasoncards.wordpress.com/201...y-gum-company/

Oh Boy seems to enter the market in 1925 though the logo/art on the crate seems to have evolved from the original advertising. By 1930 or so newspaper ads for Oh Boy had pretty much disappeared. Obviously not a definitive conclusion, but I'd guess late 1920s.

As an enthusiast of that era, do you have any details on the crate from the seller? Was this purchased in Canada or close to that border? Thanks!
