Set 1648, titled British Naval Display, comprises 51 pieces including a Royal Navy Landing Party (with gun and limber), a Royal Marines band and additional figure in both blue and white livery. It is housed in a Original Types of the Royal Navy Box.
Only a handful of these are known. When US firm Old Toy Soldier Auctions sold a pristine set (with figures still tied in to the card box) for $16,000 in 2015 it was thought to be the only example known.
The example at Cheffins on February 11 was not in this condition but most elements and the box had survived intact. It was estimated at just £100-150 but was competed to £4600.
