  DESCRIPTION

(ACTUAL IMAGES)

THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST CONDITIONED AND COMPLETE SET OF THE ORIGINAL AND INFAMOUS BEATLES LUNCHBOX AND THERMOS KIT THAT HAS SURFACED. THIS HIGH-GRADE, NEARLY PERFECT NEAR MINT SET APPEARS THAT IT HAS NEVER SEEN A SCHOOL ROOM BACK IN 1965 INCLUDES:

THE ORIGINAL TISSUE PAPER WRAPPER THAT COVERED THE THERMOS WITHIN THE LUNCHBOX UPON PURCHASE. THIS ACCOMPANYING ITEM IS
     RARELY SEEN.
THE ORIGINAL 3" X 4" THERMOS 'CARE INSTRUCTION' CARD FOUND FOLDED WITHIN THE THERMOS.
THE UNUSED "THIS KIT IS PROPERTY OF" 2 " X 1" OWNERSHIP FILL-IN STICKER. (DUE TO AGE, THE STICKER HAS COME APART FROM THE BACKING).
THE ORIGINAL  "ALADDIN SCHOOL LUNCH KIT" 3" X 1" PRICE STICKER REMAINS ADHERED ON THE OUTER SIDE OF THE LUNCHBOX.

ONE THE MOST DISPLAYABLE OF ALL BEATLES MEMORABILIA - AND THIS SET IS MAGNIFICENT, COMPLETE, AND ONE OF THE VERY BEST TO STILL EXIST. LUNCHBOX IS AN SOLID, STUNNING NEAR MINT CONDITION, WITH NO FADING OF THE VIBRANT COLORS AND RAISED COLORFUL IMAGES OF THE BEATLES ON THIS GLORIOUS  EXAMPLE. NO SCRATCHES OR MARKS TO THE GRAPHICS. THE LUNCHBOX HAS  JUST FOUR MINOR WEAR POINTS (AS SEEN IN THE IMAGES) AROUND THE ROUNDED EDGES, YET NO DENTS, NO RUST. THE WHITE TRIM PIPING THAT CIRCLES THE TOP DOOR OPENING IS CLEAN AND BRIGHT WITH NO WEAR. THE STAINLESS STEEL LATCH CHROME REMAINS SHINY AND CLEAN WITH NO RUST. THE CARRYLING HANDLE IS SOLID AND THE CLEANEST WE'VE SEEN. THE GRAPHICS  ON ALL SIDES OF THE LUNCHBOX ARE VIRTUALLY FLAWLESS. THE INTERIOR OF THE LUNCHBOX REMAINS WHITE AND CLEAN WITH NO RUST. AGAIN, TYPICAL MINOR WEAR ARE THE SMALL WEAR POINTS WHERE THE THERMOS IS HELD. THE THERMOS WIRE HOLDER IS STILL INTACT AND STIFF. WE WOULD CONSIDER THIS LUNCHBOX AS "UNUSED" DESPITE THE WEAR POINTS MENTIONED THAT WERE CAUSED BY STORAGE AND TRANSPORTATION OVER THE YEARS.

THE THERMOS IS IMPECCABLE AND "AS NEW" UNUSED NEAR MINT. IT IS STELLAR, AND OF COURSE COMPLETE WITH IT'S INTERIOR STOPPER CAP, AND OUTER SCREW-ON DRINKING CUP. NO SCRATCHES, NO DENTS, NO CRACKS. THE INTERIOR OF THE THERMOS IS SPARKLING AND FLAWLESS. THE BOTTOM OF THE THERMOS GLEAMS BRILLIANTLY - AN AREA WHERE MOST OF THESE ARE FOUND TARNISHED AND RUSTY.

THE ORIGINAL TISSUE PAPER WRAPPER THAT COVERED THE THERMOS WITHIN THE LUNCHBOX UPON PURCHASE IS AN ITEM THAT IS RARELY SEEN. IT IS A BIT TATTERED AND TORN IN SOME AREAS AND GRADED AS VG, BUT IS STILL PRESENT, AND AGAIN, A PIECE OF THE ALADDIN SET THAT IS THE FIRST WE'VE SEEN.

THE ORIGINAL 3" X 4" THERMOS 'CARE INSTRUCTION' CARD WHICH WAS FOUND FOLDED WITHIN THE THERMOS IS NEAR MINT "AS NEW", AND THE UNUSED "THIS KIT IS PROPERTY OF" OWNERSHIP FILL-IN STICKER, IS ALSO "AS NEW" WHICH REMAINS STILL ADHERED TO ITS OWN BACKING, AND NEVER PEELED FOR USE.
