Vintage Original Marx 1960s Cape Canaveral Marine Corps Rescue Helicopter

Helicopter (9" long) was part of the Marx Atomic Cape Canaveral Missile Base Playset.

It is clean & complete, made of plastic. It has all it's removable wheels, rotor blades and hand crank for the hard to find interior drop winch hook which is included! Also has original stickers including "7" which designates it as the chopper which retrieved John Glenn and his Mercury capsule "Friendship 7" after the Marine Corps Astronaut became the first American to orbit the earth.

Helicopter is in excellent condition showing few signs of play consistent with a 60 year old toy.

Please see pictures to view best description of this hard to find piece.

I am also selling the Mercury Space capsule with astronaut(s) in separate auction.

This "Rescue Helicopter" is cool and will be a great addition to any Marx Space / NASA play set collections.
