Some History I found online:
The Sudbury Foundation was established in 1952 by Herbert and Esther Atkinson, and the Atkinsons were the people who ran the Sudbury Laboratory, which produced these soil testing kits. The company did very well, and the Foundation still gives $1.2 million annually in grants and scholarships.

According to this articlepublished by the Sudbury Chronicle, the Atkinsons came back to Sudbury in 1928, when they bought a home on Dutton Road that once was the home of Babe Ruth's. Shortly after, Herbert wanted to grow beans but was told the soil in which he wished to plant wasn't good. That's when he developed the soil test kits.

A 7.36% tax will be added for Illinois buyers.

All of my items are Vintage or Antique and generally are sold "As Is". I try my best to describe the condition of my items and take pictures that not only reflect the good points of the item, but also any of the major flaws it may have. Most of my items are more for display/decorating and/or just for collecting. I do not try to restore any of the items I list. I prefer to leave that to you or other experts who know how to do that. Other than wiping items of dust, I do not attempt to remove rust or patina from any item. Basically, the way I find an item and list it is is the way you will receive it. Personally, I love the "old weathered" look of antique and vintage and hope you do too.
