UP FOR SALE IS A RARE 1935 LIONEL MICKEY MOUSE CIRCUS TRAIN SET. THIS SET IS IN NEAR MINT CONDITION. BEFORE I GO ANY FURTHER, PLEASE KNOW THAT UNFORTUNATELY THERE IS NO CIRCUS TENT. APPARENTLY WHOMEVER ORIGINALLY RECEIVED THIS SET AS A GIFT DID NOT THINK MUCH OF THE CARDBOARD TENT PIECES. I CAN ONLY GUESS WHAT BECAME OF THOSE; HOWEVER, THERE IS ONE PIECE OF THE ORIGINAL CARDBOARD PIECES LEFT (SEE PHOTO). IT IS MICKEY AND MINNIE "TO THE CIRCUS". IT DOES NOT APPEAR THAT THIS SET WAS PLAYED WITH. I DON'T EVEN KNOW IF ALL OF THE PIECES WERE EVER REMOVED FROM THE BOX. THE TIN LITHOGRAPHED PIECES ARE OUTSTANDING. IF YOU LOOK AT THE PHOTO OF THE UNDERCARRIAGE OF ONE OF THE TRAIN CARS, YOU WILL NOT SEE ANY RUST. ALL OF THE PIECES ARE IN SIMILAR CONDITION. THE BOX IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION OVERALL AS WELL. I DID TAKE PHOTOS OF THE AREAS OF THE BOX THAT HAD DAMAGE. THE ONLY OTHER ISSUE THAT I DISCOVERED WAS THAT AN ORIGINAL EVERREADY BATTERY WAS LEFT IN THE LOCOMOTIVE AND CORRODED THE IMMEDIATE AREA INSIDE WHERE THE BATTERY HAD BEEN LOCATED (PLEASE SEE PHOTO). I DON'T BELIEVE THIS SHOULD BE MUCH OF AN ISSUE, BUT I WILL LET THE BUYER DECIDE ON HOW TO DEAL WITH IT. I DID GO AHEAD AND REMOVED THE CORRODED BATTERY. I HAVE NOT TRIED TO WIND THE LOCOMOTIVE. THE LOCOMOTIVE ALSO HAS JUST A FEW MINOR FLECKS IN THE PAINT. I BOUGHT THIS AND SOME OTHER TOYS FROM A LOCAL ESTATE IN SOUTH CAROLINA. ALL OF THE TOYS WERE IN NEAR MINT TO MINT CONDITION AND HAD BEEN STORED AWAY FOR MANY YEARS UNUSED. I PRIDE MYSELF IN ACCURATELY REPRESENTING WHAT I SELL. PLEASE REVIEW THE PHOTOS AND THEN EMAIL ME WITH ANY QUESTIONS. I WOULD BE GLAD TO TAKE ADDITIONAL PHOTOS AND SEND THEM TO ANYONE WHOM IS INTERESTED. IF YOU COULD MANAGE TO FIND THE ORIGINAL TENT SOMEWHERE YOU WOULD HAVE QUITE A GEM. THANKS FOR LOOKING!
