Old Cornish Mines

The Old Cornish Mine series of matchboxes first appeared in England in 1962 and quickly became popular with the public and with matchbox collectors (phillumenists). They were produced by the Cornish Match Company of Halsetown, Cornwall.

This web site celebrates these wonderful matchboxes and lists all known labels in all of the series together with pictures and a description of each one. It is designed to be a comprehensive resource for phillumenists who want to share knowledge about the Old Cornish Mine and related series.
