Do you have any idea how old that label is?

Possibly 60 to 80 years old.  Can't narrow it down any more than that.  Finding crate label production dates are difficult, especially when so many of the packing houses are no longer in existence.  (I saw another Stadelman's label on line exactly like the one on the previous page, only it had a pear on it rather than apples.)
