2 View-master sets, COWBOY STARS, COWBOY ADVENTURES

This is a very nice pair of older Viewmaster COWBOY packets.

COWBOY STAR ADVENTURE packet, CBPX-2. This is among the earliest 3-reel packets (with the long back flap) first offered between 1948 and the mid-1950s. The S-1 packet has minor wear at the corners and is in very good condition except for a tear in the upper right corner w the flap was opened. No booklet was issued with this set.

The packet contains three reels, all © 1953. The reels are excellent, with clear, bright images, and no bubbling and virtually no viewer wear. The numbers are:

946 Roy Rogers in "The Holdup"

951 Gene Autry in "The Kidnapping"

956 Hopalong Cassidy in "The Cattle Rustler" (has a spot of discoloration on the reel).

COWBOY STARS packet, unnumbered. This S-3 packet (mid-1950s) is still factory sealed. It shows the effects of age and accumulated dust. I assume the reels are mint. The reels are:

950 Gene Autry and Champion

955 Hopalong Cassidy and Topper

960 Cisco Kid and Pancho
