The box is showing its age and has tape repairs. The set is very good to excellent. The 21089 Washington engine runs like the day it left the factory and smokes prolifically for the old timer style engines with the small smoke unit. It has a few scuffs and paint chips on the side that faced down in the box.
I would grade the engine VG because of these chips & scuffs (see pictures). The 24055 Ammunition Car is excellent and this one never had the stickers installed nor the brake wheel. This set was one of the later ones that had pikemaster couplers. No cannon for the cannon car, and no stickers or brake wheels on the box car.
You can tell this is a late set by the fact a long lost sticker covered the listing of the cannon on the box insert. That area is cleaner and whiter since the sticker had protected it for years. These stickers typically dry up and fall off. The pin was never installed in the cannon car.
I leave that to your judgement as to keeping original or enhancing. Bringing up the rear is the 24750 Red Troop & Supply Car.
I grade this car VG since it has some light scratches and rubs, again on the side that was face down in the box. The whole set had very little play time but travel in the box without wrapping the cars caused some minor rubs and paint chips.The item "American Flyer 20655 with 21089 Washington Engine -Civil War Set in Original Box" is in sale since Sunday, April 11, 2021.
