Hope you guys can help me learn about a nice little find I had at a car boot at the weekend. I came across a wooden box with quite a substantial quantity of vintage Lego. A variety of pieces including eight 10x20 plates, standard bricks, corner pieces, windows, transparent bricks and lettered printed bricks amongst other little bits. Unfortunately three of the baseplates have sustained substantial damage to the sides, but apart from that the rest of it looks in pristine condition. A little bit of yellowing here and there, but nothing much. One or two more modern bricks might have found their way into the set, but literally only one or two.
The box itself again looks original and in remarkable condition. There's no graphics of any sort which makes me think either it was a large sticker that was applied to the lid that has long gone, or the lid is a replacement. The lid has a tiny bit of what appears to be water damage, but nothing much, and again possibly shows that it has age rather than being a recent replacement?
A fairly brief bit of research suggests that, even if this was originally sold together, there isn't such thing as a set ID for wooden boxes, so I'm not looking for a specific answer. Nor am I looking for a value as I don't intend to resell yet, although I will say I paid all of £20 for it. Rather, just any general information or history lessons on what I might have would be much appreciated!
