509 Variation wagon


available from 1970 until the "end"


The Variation wagon 509

The content
"Variationswagen", now 15 pieces superstructure as announced in the ctalogues as of 1970, e.g. animals, 4 high side walls, fences, 2 crew and 4 fences. Regardless the way of counting - I never matched the 15 pieces as described. It is always more - up to 19 pieces!!! Deviating from the pictures on the box - NO barrels were delivered!!!  

Italian boxes

Variationswagen in 1st available box - cardboard. The inscription is still 508, either pasted over or crossed out. Italian pricing of 1100 Lira. My previous allegation, that the animals Biller distributed together with these sets as well as for the 238 / 1638 Sets were made by Heinerle, a German company famous for all kind of bits and pieces, is obsolete. These accesorries were obviously produced by Manurba - as these 2 bags with 6 animals each proof.
4 x latest edition on blisterd cardboard
