Condition: 8 Original Box: 7+ Year: 1948
Now available for sale is a beautiful SP-style illuminated caboose with crisp exterior colors and clean, complete side lettering. There are no nicks, chips nor blemishes on the caboose and only the smallest signs of box rub marks on the high mold areas. The frame, trucks and couplers are clean and free of rust and oxidation. This is an early variation without a smokestack, staple-end trucks and transition coil couplers, indicating late 1947 / early 1948 production.
Also included is a nice Middle Classic box with both and and tuck flaps as well as all four interior flaps -- but is missing the coupler flap.
