Generally very good condition in a fair (tape repairs to two corners, discoloring) box. What makes this set special is the very early (Circa 1896/7) box, which was produced before the boxes started getting numbered, with original cardboard inserts.
The figures (tin swords, rearing horse officer, unmarked horses) are quite nice as well but a bit later than the box by a year or two. Together quite a rare set. See photos for additional details. Please see my other auctions. The item "Britains Rare Boxed Set 1 The Life Guards.
