It is normal for some of these figures to have slightly bent bayonets or rifles, as long as the figure is complete. Confederates are nice light gray and Union are in a nice flat blue! The Accessory Set is split in the correct colors and all accessories are original Marx, but there is a slight color variation in a couple of pieces that were missing, and replaced.

Lid was attached back to box base with cardboard hinge. Box has some typical storage wear, but no other repairs.Box is still sturdy, in serviceable condition, and it displays nicely as well. While this set is in Very Good condition, it is 50-60 years old, and some pieces will have typical play wear.
