ORIGINAL PLAY SET BOX has some fading to printing on box top, a few interior cardboard repairs and reinforcements, but for a 50-60 year old cardboard box, this Box is clean, fairly sturdy, and displays nicely!
This is a 50-60 Year Old set, and it is not perfect, but it is Very Good. ALL FIGURES ARE ACCOUNTED FOR! One Confederate Flag Bearer is complete and 02 have broken flags that have been repaired. Two mold sets of the Confederates are medium/lighter gray and 01 set- dark gray.This Burnside Bridge has beautiful dark gray color with black marbeling, making it unusual, but difficult to appreciate in the pictures. The Union figures are an unusual, vibrant blue that really stands out with the dark gray Confederates. There are some short bayonets, and I suspect that these figures probably came from the Glen Dale factory exactly as you see them. All of the figures running with rifles at the waist have complete rifles, but no bayonets. After taking the pictures, I included two more Union flag bearers to compensate for the two with the short flagpole. Color matching within this vintage set is very good! ALL FIGURES ARE VINTAGE MARX! On the HP Accessories, one of the rifle stack bases is broken, one of the brown log spikes has several missing spikes, and I have included a later edition gray log spikes to make up for this. One "buffer" that holds horse in the caisson is broken and missing, and one of the handles on the caisson seat is also missing. All in all, this is still a super complete set in original vintage box.
