The loco is excellent with nice clean paint. There are no real scratches, with a few nicks throughout. The loco has been re-wheeled. The tender is equally nice with a few small nicks and an excellent oil label and stamping underneath. All 3 cars are in amazing original condition.
They have nice clean paint, with no scratches at all, and almost no nicks. All trim is complete and intact except for one hand grab on the #421, and one step on the #422. A replacement step is included. This is the more desirable first production and one year only Blue Comet set that features brass trim, die-cast journals and the #390E loco. All 3 car boxes are bricks and correctly marked.All 3 are sealed on one end. The #421 box is missing one flap.
The ultra rare set box is nice and all complete. There is some slight repair to the interior flaps, but all flaps are present, along with some slight glue repair to the sides that seems to have been unnecessary. It has an excellent label. This is the correct set box for the #390E set as it is the one piece box. Overall a nice example of a virtually never seen box.This is a high-grade set that would be the centerpiece of your collection! Please examine photos as they are the best description.
