Ivory Chess Set W/paperwork Purchased 8/14/63 Inherited
My father in law passed away, and while clearing out his house, I came upon a chess set in the original box with packing and provenance.
The set came from the Hang On Ivory Factory, fac#34, Hong Kong, believed to have been purchased during one of his tours overseas, purchase date 8/14/1963, purchase price 411.00.
In the box was the original purchase document. The box, although original, is in ok condition, the game board/pieces are in great condition and doesn't look like it was ever played on, a few of the player piece retention straps are loose.
After talking it over with the family/estate officer, they have asked me to check on the potential for sale, as I was the one who rescued it from the dumpster.
Here are a few pictures of the box, set, board and provenance.
I have an appraisal coming, but pre. those results, looking what you think of the set. Hints of value are greatly appreciated, offers will be considered.
