The colourful outer box is intact, clean with excellent strong colours. Looks as if it has had little handling and stored away from the light; the colours are day-one vibrant.

Cgs4f645

Little surface scuff and the occasional minor edge rubbing and the lid ‘bulges’ a little. Period penned price on box base underside. Complete with both upper and lower packing pieces.

Cgs4f647

Nice to see that the Rocket Age Leaflet is included ? lots of details and pictures of this military range. Also included – Instruction Slip for the Bloodhound Guided Missile, as well as the early ‘Moorgate’ Corgi Club Membership Form and Quality Control Slip.

An impressive military Gift Set which is always difficult to find in any condition, especially hard to find complete with a fine box.
