There are now five Violet-green Swallow eggs in the nestbox on the side of my house. However, the eggs in this photo were collected by my father (authorized by state and federal permits) on June 6, 1953, and are now in the collection at Portland State University. He found them also in a nestbox he had mounted on our house at that time. The 52-year-old eggs look just like the ones I saw today with the aid of a mirror and a flashlight.
