Condition: 8 Original Box: 7 Year: 1952
Here's the one-year-only maroon 6457 caboose from 1952. This SP-style caboose has beautiful exterior colors with clean, crisp side lettering and graphics. Additionally, there is no damage to the body, the frame, trucks and end railings are clean and free of rust and oxidation plus the caboose has the correct bar-end trucks from 1952. Lastly, the interior light does illuminate.
Also included with the caboose is the correct 6457-25 box from 1952 -- which is also a one-year-only box for this caboose. The box is missing one coupler flaps, otherwise all other flaps are present, but there is tape on a couple interior flaps.
