This is a very nice, plastic/metal toy Union (Blue) Civil war cavalry set. Includes the original very RARE "Marx" box, and several similar cavalry pieces from the Confederate civil war set as well. The rifle is marked Marx, but the other items are NOT marked "Marx", although they are very nice and appear to compliment this dual cavalry set nicely. Not sure if they have to be marked Marx.
The original "Marx" box, for the Union (Blue) war items, has some staining, age, and slight cardboard separation, as would be expected. But it is intact overall, except for one side flap which is missing. The color of the box is nice red and blue with soldiers and union & confederate flags on all sides. I do NOT have the box for Confederate (gray) items. The hats, pistols, sabres, scabbards, and Union army rifle are all intact and work/perform their warfare function.
The pistols appear to be "Hubley" made items, as they are each marked with a "H" on each piece. Inside the buttons on the two belts appears to be marked "MH112". No other marks that I can find on the equipment.No workability issues with any of these pieces, Union or Confederate. The Union (blue) hat has a slight indent in the back of the hat. The Union rifle is stamped with Marx Oct 5 1853. The original box measures 28" in length x 9" across x 3.5 wide. See pictures for details of these nice 1960's toy civil war items. If need additional pictures, let me know and will send to you for further identification as best I can.
