American Flyer 639 unpainted yellow boxcar #1 G+ NR

You are bidding on an American Flyer # 639 unpainted yellow boxcar. Lettering and the finish are almost like new on both sides, though the L is partly scratched off on one side and the car is dirty. (Clean using a soft toothbrush and two drops of dishwashing liquid in a cup of water; dry with a paper towel.) One of the black-weight link couplers is broken; the other is complete and works well. There are small rust spots inside the trucks where you don't see them, and the wheels need cleaning; otherwise, both trucks are in very good condition. Both ends of the catwalk have a corner broken off; one end also has the remaining end cracked and bent downward. T his car rates a strong C-5, Good. The 2010 Greenberg Price Guide lists it at $17.00 in Excellent condition.

Sorry, I don't have the box.

This car is being sold with no reserve.

This is part of a large estate collection I am selling for a widow in Florida . The collection has been stored in a climate-controlled outbuilding with air conditioning and humidity control. In order to make sure that we do right by her, I am listing everything at 20% to 40% below Greenberg value (adjusted for condition) rather than starting the bidding at 99 cents.

Shipping cost includes insurance and delivery confirmation so you can track it. I will ship it uninsured Priority
