Text includes “A Flashing-Roaring-Speeding Model Of Buck Rogers Famous Inter-Planetary Rocket Cruiser”. Box has some dust soil which is more heavily pronounced on one image of rockets trailing each other. Same image on reverse side has 1" area near center with small puncture and lt. creasing. Two corners on right side have small tears repaired with cellophane tape which has yellowed. Box is overall VG but remains structurally sound and color remains strong. Box comes with single original plain cardboard insert that fits around the nose cone. Very attractively designed 12" long tin litho rocket ship includes detailed images of Buck, Wilma and Dr. Huer in cockpit windows. Flint holder is missing but replacement is easily available. Has separate original tail fin flint cover which is often missing. Underside of the nose cone has full figure Buck Rogers image surrounded by series of ovals. Toy works exceptionally well and travels forward as pinging sound is made. Underside has narrow 3/8" scuff mark worn down to bare metal and toy has trace of lt. wear here and there but bright and Fine overall. Wonderful graphics on both box and toy.
