A Marx "Battle of the Blue and Gray" playset from 1960. Nice set in excellent condition missing only the small pair of gloves from the 35 piece accessory spruce. This weapon/accessory spruce is unique to this playset and I believe a header card bag set, in yellow. Box in very good to excellent condition, nice color, some small punctures on cover. Instruction sheet also nice condition, one small corner missing.Has 13 original Marx bags with 4 being labeled, they are in mostly very good condition. Tin mansion in excellent condition, was assembled and re flattened. 24 piece hard plastic accessory set in gray + dark brown in mint condition.
Hard plastic redoubt, destroyed mansion, pair of flag poles with tin litho flags, 2 green trees, a tan tent set with 3 piece cot and a firing black cannon with all the shells still attached to the spruce are all in excellent condition. As mentioned above the 35 piece accessory spruce is in yellow and 34 pieces are there and in good condition. Figures in the set consist of three sets of 16 infantry per side. 48 Confederates, 32 in matched medium gray and 16 in a lighter shade also all matched.
Union infantry has three sets of 16, 2 and a half of the sets (40 figures) are matched the remaining 8 are similar shade and hard to tell the difference. Cavalry consists of two matched figures on each side with 4 cavalry horses. There are the three character figures, Lincoln, Grant and Lee in a nice light cream color plus a dead horse in brown.
