Condition

THE FENCE ARE REALLY NICE. THEY ARE CLEAN & COMPLETE. NONE ARE GLUED TOGETHER AND THERE ARE NO BREAKS, CRACKS OR GLUE STAINS. THIS WAS ONE OF THE EARLIEST ITEMS MADE BY THE BACHMANN BROTHERS IN THE LATE 40s – EARLY 50s AND IS CONSIDERED RARE BY SOME COLLECTORS. THE FENCE WERE ORIGINALLY CALLED THE CHRISTMAS FENCE BECAUSE THEY WERE USED FOR SHELF DECORATIONS AND FOR DISPLAY UNDER CHRISTMAS WITH SMALL BLDGS.

Accessories

ONE SET OF 15 FENCE & 1 GATE COME IN ITS OWN, RARE, ORIGINAL BOX. THE OTHER 15 FENCE & GATE DO NOT COME IN A BOX. THE BOX IS IN NICE SHAPE FOR ITS AGE; ESPECIALLY SINCE THIS IS A FRAGILE BOX. THE BOX HAS 2 CORNERS TAPED WITH CLEAR TAPE. THIS TYPE OF BOX WAS ONE OF THE FIRST BOXES MADE BY THE BACHMANN BROTHERS IN THE LATE 1940s - EARLY 1950s. ONE GENERALLY DOES NOT FIND THIS BOX IN GOOD SHAPE BECAUSE IT WAS VERY FRAGILE AND WAS USUALLY DISCARDED.

Comments

THIS WOULD ALSO MAKE A NICE ADDITION FOR ANY TRAIN COLLECTOR; FOR YOURSELF OR AS A NICE, RARE, HOLIDAY GIFT FOR THAT SPECIAL TRAIN ENTHUSIAST. WHAT LAYOUT EXISTS WITHOUT A NICE PLASTICVILLE SET OF 16 PICKET FENCE (CHRISTMAS FENCE) AND ORIGINAL BOX FROM THE LATE 40s - EARLY 50S - WITH 16 EXTRA FENCE THROWN IN?
