This is an incredible and rare set, part of my father-in-law's collection amassed over 30 years. 117, 8 Infantry figures in a newer Britains box with what looks to be an original Fred Whisstock label!For those who dont know W Britain history well, Whisstock was an extremely talented artist who created labels for the pre-war boxes. The label alone makes this box of soldiers highly collectible! Its likely that these figures are pre-war. They look to be in excellent, mint to near-mint shape. When figures are this good, you always wonder if theyve been retouched, but I have no reason to believe theyre not original!
Collectors, please feel free to weigh in. Please examine photos carefully as they are considered part of the description.
