MARX "Sands of Iwo Jima" Miniature Play Set

Very Cool Marx Iwo Jima WWII Playset! "Made in the British Crown Colony of Hong Kong." I believe this item to be 1960s vintage or older. See below for a detailed list of contents and the condition of each piece. Rare to see a set with this many pieces. I believe t are also some extras that were not originally included in the set.
