Because of this, they sold special Gold Boxes with 100 of their colors.
The other day my grandmother gave me one of these boxes that she found in a closet. It was mine, and since I was horrible at coloring I never really used them.
Looking on the back of the box, I saw there was a contest going on during their 100th year.
"We're bringing in four new colors, but to do so we need to get rid of four classic colors! You pick which of these FIVE CHOICES can stay in the 100!"
So yeah, they picked five colors, and asked us to pick which of the five would not be with the four sent away.
Looking through the box, I saw I still have all five choices. All intact.
..I dunno why, but I feel glad to still have these five colors you can't get anymore.
I think I'll keep them on my shelves.
