1958 set - 232 Road Signs
Dear Brickset, may I seek your advice on a recent purchase. I picked this up at a vintage shop in Bournemouth (UK) today for £13.50. Some initial research suggests it’s incomplete, and I don’t think the traffic light is Lego, but the box is in great condition and I thought it was interesting given it’s 60 years old next year. I’ve attached some pictures. I have a few questions you might be able to help with please?
1. Are the card signs original and Lego?
2. What bits are missing?
3. Is there any interesting history attached to it?
4. I’ve not seen the box art with the sailor in any of the pictures online nor in the database, was it UK specific perhaps?
5. It’s my first ever vintage purchase, is it worth having?
