As it eventually does with most toy train collectors, the time has come to begin "thinning" my collection, which I have acquired over the past 25 years. The pieces I will be offering include American Flyer S Gauge Post-War, as well as Lionel O Gauge Post-War and Modern. Some diecast modern and other vintage toys will appear from time-to-time. The majority of these pieces will be in C-7 or better condition, some with boxes, some without. It is my hope that those bidding on these items will enjoy them as much as I have.
All of these items will be offered with low opening bid to encourage interest. NO RESERVE, ever.
SHIPPING: My first choice for shipping will be via Priority Mail, then via UPS for larger items. I will always inform the buyer of the shipping method, and will provide tracking numbers as soon as I have them.
I will not ship internationally, please do not ask me to do so.
Within the lower 48 states it will be my policy to ship free of charge. If a winning bidder resides in Alaska, Hawai'i, or other US territory served via the USPS or UPS, an additional charge may be asked to help defray extra costs. The exception will be to Military personnel APO or FPO's, where shipping will always be complimentary and with my thanks for a job well done.
RETURNS: Unless there is a gross misrepresentation of an item on my part, I will accept no returns on any items I will offer. My item descriptions will be as clear and as complete as I can make them. Questions are welcomed. PLEASE ASK BEFORE YOU BID, to avoid any misunderstanding.
DESCRIPTION: This is an American Flyer postwar #761 Semaphore with its origianl box and instructions, as shown. Cosmetically, this has been used but not abused (C-5 condition) and should clean up well. There is an area of missing paint on one side of the toolbox. The connecting wires have been cut short. The box is solid and square with all flaps and its insert. The instruction sheet has been folded but otherwise has no rips or tears.
There are no #697 track trips or #707 track connector included.
This model has not been tested for operation. It is being offered on an AS-IS, NO RETURNS basis as far as operation is concerned. I will accept no returns for its failure to operate properly, in any way. Please keep this in mind as you consider bidding on this auction.
Thank you for considering this S Gauge auction.
