This is the #175 Gold Star Stagecoach made by Fisher Price in 1954-1955.  It is complete and in AWESOME condition...especially considering that it is 60 years old.  Nothing on this toy is broken.  The horses have no cracks or breaks in them.  I found just a tiny piece of litho missing on the corner of the driver's foot rest (see first picture).  In that same picture you'll see just a bit of paint missing on the corner of the roof.  There is some age spotting on the back (un-lithoed) edges of the horses and some on the yellow connector piece.  I don't know what that piece is called, but pictures are posted below.  

All the lithos on the stagecoach, the horses and the driver are in fabulous shape, showing only the very slightest signs of wear.  The driver has great face paint and his hat is complete with no chips in it.  He is holding the original reins which somehow became crossed.  I think the reins must have been attached this way in the factory because they are certainly not torn anywhere.  The original pull string with red knob on the end is attached.

This toy is in perfect working condition.  When you pull it the horses prance up and down, and the stagecoach makes the correct "clippity-clop" sound.  Of course the whole top lifts up as does the lid of the gold box on the back.

Now for the exciting news.  Both original wooden mailbags are included.  The lithos on one are pretty good; the other one shows lots of wear.  However, I'm including   a set of four replacement lithos that can be cut out and glued onto the mailbags if desired.  Personally, I wouldn't do it, but that will be up to the discretion of the new owner.

Normally I thoroughly clean all my toys, but on this one I have done only a light dusting.  I'll leave any further cleaning to the buyer.  I don't want to do any damage to this very rare old piece.
