This is a beautiful example of the early Milton Bradley Co. games, in this case a vintage puzzle of a map of the United States. It is double sided with one side being the U.S. map and the other side having several depictions of Uncle Sam and flags of the countries of the world. This comes with the original box lid...unfortunately not the entire box. The lid is partial also in that it has only two of the end pieces remaining. The colorful paper label attached to the cardboard lid shows Uncle Sam with a large pair of scissors cutting on the dotted line between Oregon and California. Below it says; Cut On State Lines. I'm not quite sure how this was sold but the puzzle pieces don't look as though they were cut by hand. It has the paper applied to each side of a very dense fiber like cardboard. With some creativity this would probably frame nicely.
Overall the puzzle is complete and in nice condition. Some of the state pieces are very slightly warped and there is light soiling. The puzzle measures about 14" by 20" and the top of the box measures about 7 1/2" by 9 1/2". This will be mailed unassembled!
