I'm not 100% sure this is the right place to ask this question, but here it goes anyway. I recently acquired set that isn't in anybody's database as far as I can tell. Not here, Bricklink, Peeron, Lugnet or any other site I've searched.
Here's what I can tell you. The set I got is a loose set with mostly red and white Samsonite era Pat Pend bricks with a few blue bricks. The box is a brown cardboard box stamped with LEGO, Samsonite and a catalog number. And I have a small in-pack catalog for LEGO by Samsonite. It advertises four sets and has Samsonite like instructions on the back. I've tracked the catalog number down to a '72 Sears Christmas catalog. Sears sold four sets that year. A 1047 piece set, a 846 piece set, a 665 piece set and a 395 piece set. Which happens to match the sets advertised in the in-pack catalog. I have the 665 piece set.
This is where the trail goes cold. The box is a cube like box similar to the late Samsonite era Imagination sets (101-105). But the part counts are clearly different and as are the inventories. Sets 102-105 all have gears and wheels, whereas only the larger two Sears set have gears and wheels. The source of this information is the in-pack catalog explicitly states that only the 1047 and 846 piece sets have those parts.
So anybody have any more information that they can add to this?
