this recent purchase came from a seller in Germany, & it is a beauty.
the very fair minded description given by the seller cannot be faulted.
sets such as these are far from easy to get , so the word rare is correct, as having looked at hundreds& hundreds of early plastics , i have never
seen such a set before.
the box which i doubt is original , offers no clues as to any maker.
to make a realistic comparison, i have seen Jaques wooden sets sell for alot more than the whole cost of my complete plastic collection.
one of course can decide to ignore these sets. but over the years since 2004, my decision to collect Plastic sets , with a preference for the older ones, which have been difficult to collect, feels fully justified.
yet amongst the C C I membership some fellow collectors have been reluctant to part with these hard to get collectables.
Even doing a Jack Russell job, biting away with cash offers on them has failed miserably. TOUGH !! if ever parted with ,getting another one , will
be very difficult indeed.
on occasion some popular U S A PLASTIC sets have been offered for
sale , but the Extortionate shipping costs are deal killers , but sellers
over here give collectors a decent chance to pick up a few of them.
sometimes i get so frustrated with these crazy costs, so i simply give up !!
