#412 VINTAGE G I JOE FIRST ISSUE MARINE MINT UNIFORMED FIGURE
The full description is at the bottom of the page after all of the photos.
I have been collecting Vintage G I Joe since 1996. I have sold hundreds of vintage GIJoe items in that time. I have sold items on my website, on eBay and on other for sale sites. I have been buying and selling on eBay since the beginning of eBay. My dmckee63 screen name was originally registered in January of 1997 and I have had great success making people happy with what I sold to them.
ITEM #412 - VINTAGE GIJOE FIRST ISSUE MARINE MINT UNIFORMED FIGURE.
Here is a photo of everything you get with this figure FIRST ISSUE Joe, MINTY HEAVY EYELINER Joe, MINT first issue pocketed fatigues, dead mint perfect rubber boots and R-R dog tag.
Here is the back of the figure, everything is mint and shiny.
Here is a close up of the face and hair and heavy eyeliner paint of the Joe.
Here is a close up of the left side of the head.
Here is a close up of the back of the head and hair.
Here is a close up of the right side of the head.
Here is a close up of the perfect LIGHT BROWN full size rubber boots. I've been chasing rubber boots for over 25 years and these lighter brown boots are EXTREMELY difficult to find. Most brown boots are a darker brown. I suspect that in the beginning of 1964 the plan was to put darker brown rubber boots on Soldiers and the lighter ones on Marines. Rubber boots turned out to not work for large production in the U.S. so they swithced to the plastic tall boots very early on in production.
Here is the front of the true first issue blonde Joe.
Here is the back of the figure which has no play wear other than light touches on the rivet paint.
This is a close up of the TM-Patent pending first issue butt.
Here is a close up of the extraordinary face paint; truly stunning with almost no wear except on one eyebrow.
Here is how firmly the Joe stands with no support. Most old Joes are wobbly and weak kneed. ALL of the parts are original to this Joe and nothing has been swapped out.
Here is a close up of the top half showing how smooth and unplayed with the plastic is.
Here is the back of the knees showing only one minor crack.
Only one minute crack on the front of one knee.
This is one side of the perfect first issue rubber boots.
This is the other side of the dead mint rubber boots.
This shows how soft and pliable the boots really are, amazingly minty and beautiful.
They are so soft you could almost turn them inside out.
This is the close up of the beautiful dog tag. I really like the Hong Kong made dog tag on my first issue Hong Kong made Joes.
This is the close up of the first issue tag in the deluxe carded shirt.
This is the fresh of the card condition shirt with no stains, snags or any problems of any kind.
This is the back of the shirt, perfection.
This is the front of the untagged pants which are a perfect match to the shirt.
Thisis the back of the 3 pocket pants.
This is one more photo of the pants pockets.
