You are looking at an interesting American Flyer COMPLETE set from 1957-58 that books say was sold through an unknown retailer. As you can see, the stamp shows this set was shipped to Ohio Cycle in Cleveland, Ohio. This one has an original set box that has been verified through Tufts book as being for this 20123. The 20123 is interesting in that it came in a series of different boxes. The "pizza box" red and white is the most common. However, there are a few other styles of boxes such as this one that housed other versions of that same set number, sent to different retailers. I believe the items in this set came in a box that had compartments rather than the individual boxes. We added the individual reproduction boxes.
It is a neat set featuring a classic 307 Reading steam engine and nice freight cars.
This is ALOT of vintage train for the money, and an item you will be proud of. Or perhaps you have an American Flyer collector.
Please take the time to read the whole description below before bidding. We took time in writing it for you.
