One of a kind Salesman Sample set. This set was featured in the most rare and unusual book. I have decided to give the chance to own a truly unique set. By choosing E-Bay, you the buyer will not have to pay any fees; I will pay all the fees. The term rare is used so much today it has lost some significance. I view rare, as something unique, something that if I pick up the phone I could not purchase at any price. Most collectors place the #2347 C&O, #2033 UP Gray Nose, #6464-300 Solid Shield … etc in the rare category. I do not; they are scarce, but they can all be purchased if a buyer is willing. Lionel made a handful of orange #6464-1954 Western Pacific Box Cars and a handful of clear #2333 Santa Fe shells, but they made only one #114 Set. Neither I nor my colleagues have ever seen anything like this set. This set is the only one known to exist, think about that, the only one. Here is your chance to own a piece that is truly rare. I recently sold a couple of prototypes privately to long time friends. When interest in this set came up, it was difficult to come up with a value. How do you place a value on a one of a kind item? There are no sales to compare it with. I will leave that up to you, the bidders. I know there are only about five to ten collectors who are interested in and willing to purchase this set!
