500: ABT: Lionel Halloween General Set/Set Box & Sleeve
Paul V. Ambrose and Drew J. Bauer present: This is the famous "Halloween" General Set that Lionel made in 1960; it was offered as a premium by Gifts Galore thru selected retail outlets, such as Rexall Drugs. As seen in the pictures, this example includes the often discarded cardboard outer sleeve (No set is truly complete without this substantial value-added sleeve). As we wrote in our Guide to Lionel Trains, 1945-1969, Volume IV, Uncatalogued Sets, this was "one of the premier post-war promotional sets". This Set includes the #1882 Halloween General Engine, the #1882T General Tender, the #1866 Mail/Baggage General Car, the #1885 Special Blue Halloween General Passenger Car, the 1887 Brown Flat Car with Yellow Fences and Horses, the #963-100 Plasticville Frontier Set with Picture Front, 12 027 Curve Track, 4 Straight Track, a 90 Degree 027 Crossing and the #1015 Transformer. Our Opinion is that the Set is generally in Like New Condition, minor signs of use and age. The Original Maroon Cardboard Flat Pack is in (9-) Condition, a piece of tape on one corner, and includes a crisp, die-cut "speckled" Insert. The Brown Cardboard Shipping Sleeve in (9-) Condition. This uncataloged Outfit is a Centerpiece of any Significant Post-War Collection. All Original in our Opinion. Please add $50.00 for US-48 Shipping and Insurance.

Other than the specific exceptions listed herein, an item may not be returned for any other reason. MORE DISCLOSURES: All train items are graded in good faith pursuant to AmbroseBauer Trains' understanding of the grading standards of the Train Collectors Association as actually applied by most knowledgeable collectors who sell or buy substantial amounts of trains each year. AmbroseBauer Trains do not aver or guarantee that the TCA would agree on any specific day as to the specific grading used herein. Although the TCA does not use plus and minus in their grading standards, ABT uses them to convey which range of a particular grade the piece is closer. ABT believe such a use gives a potential purchaser a better idea as to the actual subjective grading of a piece. Boxes are graded pursuant to the widespread DJB Standard Box Grading Standards. All standards are obviously subjective but ABT has been grading items for over thirty years. ABT include "in our Opinion" in each listing to make the point that the grading is ABT's personal opinion and that others may have a different opinion. Please note that on each used item ABT includes at least ten high quality photographs with the listings so that you can make your own opinion as to its condition. ABT expect each bidder to view these photos and as such ABT's listings do not necessary include all information as to an item that can easily be ascertained by the viewing of the photos. Items purchased may not be returned on issues of Grading. OPERATION OF OUR PRIVATE AUCTIONS: Your bids cannot be cancelled or stopped once you have reached a certain amount, or if you are interested in bidding on multiple items, your directions not to bid on the remaining items if you have or have not won a specific item will not be honored. As such, be prepared to be the winning bidder on any bid that you may place. Absentee bids may be cancelled by Drew J. Bauer, Esquire and/or AmbroseBauer Trains in the event there is a conflict in the stated condition or variation of an item, an error in the listing, an error in the catalog, current or previous nonpayment of bids, and/or any reasonable basis at the discretion of the named Attorney and/or Auctioneer. Neither Drew J. Bauer, Esquire nor AmbroseBauer Trains is responsible for missed Absentee Bids and/or the execution of e-bay LIVE or e-bay LIVE bids. In the event that e-bay LIVE goes down before or during a Private Auction, it is at the discretion of Drew J. Bauer, Esquire and/or AmbroseBauer Trains to continue the Private Auction with or without the placement of any current e-bay LIVE Bids.

Any Bidder, by agreeing to these Terms and Conditions, by registering for this Auction, and by placing a bid on any particular lot, agrees that the Attorney does have the final word as to the winning bidder of any particular lot and that the designation by e-bay live of the winning bidder shall not be relevant unless ratified by the Attorney. OPERATION OF ITEMS: Unless otherwise noted in the listing that ABT has operated an item, ABT does not test items.

ABT does not aver or warrant to any degree anyone's satisfaction of the operation of a particular item or that all operational functions of a particular item actually operated.
