Why call it Ovaltine? The jar is round... shouldn't we call it "Roundtine?"

My guess is that the material is from this gentleman's estate:

Breuer, Helmut B. Passed away peacefully July 18, 2020 in presence of family. Born on April 10, 1936 in Aachen, Germany, Helmut married and raised his family in Austria and Germany before immigrating to the USA in 1976. Helmut is remembered by his family and friends as a husband, a father, a mentor and friend. He was an avid student of history, loved to travel and collecting stamps. He grew up in Aachen during WWII and worked for Wander/Sandoz once he completed business school. In 1976, when Sandoz tapped him to come to the U.S. to run Sandoz Nutrition, he moved his family to Edina. During his career, he reformed the business, growing their nutrition lines to the point that Ovaltine, Poppycock, and Screaming Yellow Zonkers were a sideshow to booming commercial nutrition verticals. He then negotiated the purchase of Gerber baby foods, an acquisition that was later resold for a billion dollar gain. In 1992, his job took him back to Berne, Switzerland, and once he retired 5 years later, he moved back to the US to Maidenrock, WI. Married to Regina for 58 years. Survived by Regina, daughters Brigitte (James), Susanne (Patrick) and son Joachim (Jada) and grandchildren Jan, Zak, Maggie, Max, Stefan and August. Preceded in death by daughter Ulrike, his parents, and brother Paul-Horst. Thank you to the wonderful staff at Our Lady of Peace, St. Paul for their loving care. A celebration of Helmut's life to be held at a later date. Check for further updates on the Facebook memorial page.

I lived for a short time at the Ovaltine Factory . My wife and I sold our house in Western Springs Il. for a cash sale ,they wanted the house right -a-way . Since I was still working and had contracted work until the end of the season ,I couldn't just quit and move to Florida .

So we need a place for three months but everybody wanted a one year lease on a place . My wife found a place for 3 months in the Ovaltine factory to rent for just 3 months ----In a factory !!!! It was being converted to condo's but they did want us in there to show people were living in this converted building so we moved in and was real nice with a pool and gym right next to us . Stayed for 3 months sold my business which was 1/2 mile away and then left for florida

Looks like a general worldwide collection of more modern and topical stamps . I was looking for better European collection lots and no specialized collections to be found in my first look . Will look again at the auction but just cheaper collections and a few w.w. album lots .

Looked thru the auction for lots that I could use and found it on the lite side. But that's OK - I have plenty to sell yet from past auctions and I won't have to shell out a lot of clams this go around.
