Only wear is on the light green line on each of the four corners and on the frame when the shell tubbed against the frame. All should have this wear. Even the pentagraph's are completed, and have unbroken copper handles! Very tuff to find in this condition. 431 is the odd car of the bunch having the LIONEL plates on it.Grades VG with some scuffing in the paint from being wrapped in paper for years. Also, Please notice a spot of something on the roof in both of the top scan. Not sure what this is. 419 second car from the engine. Very nice paint overall except for some scuffing over the word "BAGGAGE" and below the one small window on one side.
The other side is a full EX to me along with roof and ends. 418 (third car from the engine).
Has some stuff in the center on each side. The sides grade EX except for some play wear on one edge on one of the ends. 419 (forth car from the engine). One side grades an ex but the other side have some paint scuffing from being wrapped in paper over the years. The only major issue with this car is the paint lost around the observation deck on one side.Please look at the scan. I will be happy to provide any more scans if requested or answer any questions.
