GI Joe 1964 #7509 MOC Army Mess Kit Small Carded Set Style A

In 1964, the original GI Joe marketing plan was simple.  Sell them the doll...err...action figure :-) and then sell them plenty of outfit/accessories to go with it.  Seems simple today but it was unique in the toys for boys market (but successfully implemented with Mattel's Barbie 5 years earlier) of the early 1960s.  Each item is displayed where it could easily be seen on a store shelf - each one sewn on a card and visible through cello window or seal.  This is one of the sets you could buy to compliment your GI Joe soldier, sailor, marine, or pilot.  This particular set contains:

  • Canteen w Cover
  • Mess Kit Pan with Lid, Knife, Spoon, Fork

This particular style of the carded #7509 mess kit has the silverware lined up in the upper right hand corner of the card.  100% original!  100% Hasbro!
