RARELY DO YOU SEE A PLAY SET THIS COMPLETE. ALL FIGURES ARE ACCOUNTED FOR - INCLUDING THE FLAG BEARERS FOR EACH SIDE - MAYBE THERE ARE ONE OR TWO SHORT BAYONETS - NO BROKEN FIGURES - Maybe you can see something I missed, but these ORIGINAL and Original Matched Figures are in Very Good condition in an ORIGINAL BOX. 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! These figures are all super nice, super clean, and in super colors.I had flag bearers stored separately and forgot to include them in set up. There is a separate picture of the flagbearers. They are original and in super condition. The Accessory Set is split in the correct colors and all accessories are original Marx.
ORIGINAL PLAY SET BOX does have typical storage wear, a few bends, some writing on box in ink, some clear tape repairs to box outside, packing tape applied to box lid, and an interior repair to one corner and lower front panel, which cannot be seen from the outside of the box. Considering this is 50-60 year old cardboard box, it is still fairly 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.
