c.1963, second largest version of three sizes. 10x15x2.75" deep box has nice lid painting of marines planting American flag on Iwo Jima.

Contents include : rock mountain, tanks, troop cars, LST. boats, rubber boats, howitzers, cannons, machine guns, mortars, bombed out buildings, flags, trees, barricades, accessories. Although we have not counted everything, the hand-painted American and Japanese soldiers total almost 100 so set is most likely complete. One small platform appears to have had a few figures glued to recesses as designed, as recesses show lt. glue residue/paint loss. Other than this defect, contents appear overall Exc. A wonderfully designed and elaborate set.
