Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: This is a nice lot of action figures from the mid 20th century or earlier with nice bright colors.
Condition: The soldiers are in every good condition with no breaks, repairs or dings that we could find. The pieces have some wear and loss of paint in the uniform, the rifles and some loss of silver coloring in the helmet which can be seen in the photos. The soldier wearing the gas mask has a helmet that is a bit loose but still in place. The front of the rifle of the soldier wearing a gas mask seems to be a bit shorter than one would expect for a bayonet, but upon inspection it does not seem like it broke and there is some left over paint on the tip. Other than that the four pieces are in good played with condition. Please see photos for additional details. In Closing: This is a beautiful set of metal soldier action figures, which deserve a spot in your collection.
