USA Samsonite LEGO sales were never more than $5 million in any given year, which is why TLG took the USA LEGO license back in 1972.
All but the Jumbo Bricks and 102 Legoland set were sold by USA LEGO retailers in this type of countertop display stand.... from 1967-71....

As a potential buyer, I don't see anything here that would make me spend that sort of money. Personally the most interesting set to me is 102. I wouldn't mind have one sealed and one opened. The photo of Legoland unique to sets of this era. Sometimes I like the parts packs, sometimes I don't. In this case I don't, although I was would to see a seal 061 for some reason. I'm not a fan of the Jumbo bricks, so any sealed examples aren't that exciting to me.
Personally thoughts aside, again congratulations on the sale. Somebody clearly sees the value of these and is going to appreciate them.
