NONE OF MY ITEMS ARE MINT! DO NOT BUY MY ITEMS IF YOU ONLY WANT MINT ITEMS, I DON'T HAVE ANY!

Very Rare, Vintage 1965 mock up HASBRO GI JOE SOTW, French Resistance Fighter, Grey / Grey Wool Sweater.

This is the one of the first variation prototypes / mock ups.
The painted head foreign figure is not included! It is for sale in the second issue sales sample French Resistance fighter outfit with black non-tagged sweater and round snap pants.

This was made prior to the production release in 1966.
This is one of one. HASBRO made mock ups of outfits for each Soldiers Of The World set, in various colors and fabrics. One of each was used in either the 1965 or 1966 HASBRO sales catalog or other advertising. Others were never printed in advertisements.

After the fabric type and color was chosen (either from USA, Hong Kong or Japan or features from each) along with other components, they went into production.

I acquired this item from a well respected prototype GIJOE collector that owned it for years and purchased it from Sam Speers at HASBRO. HASBRO also made this sweater in blue. Other colors may exist, but I have never seen them.

I will be selling the item as shown. It is very difficult to let this and my other sales samples and prototypes go!

It will be posted in bubble wrap and in a box with insurance.
Please study the photos closely and ask questions before buying.

I am happy to provide more info and photos as needed.

I also have this item for sale on my flickr and telus websites so I reserve the right to remove this listing at any time. Contact me if you want to see my other items.

The sets are packed in bubble wrap inside a shipping box.
Shipping box weight and dimensions:
12in X 6in X 3.5in 8.5 oz (31cm X 16cm X 8.5cm 175 grams)

If you want a different or cheaper postage method from the Canada Post web site, contact me before buying the item.
Because of the nature of the goods, I selected the most secure / expensive option.

I calculate postage from zip code V6G 2E9 using www.canadapost.ca with the following options:
Shipping in Canada by Priority Post Parcel next business days with tracking and insurance.
Shipping to USA by Canada Post Xpresspost 3 business days with tracking and insurance.
Shipping to Europe and Japan is expensive by air! Surface mail (boat) is cheaper and takes 4 weeks or more. This will be sent Xpresspost with tracking and insurance $1000 max allowed.

This is one of my many vintage GI JOE, Action Man, Action Joe and Takara GIJOE items that I am selling.
Contact me to see more items.

I make every effort to accurately describe all items,however,all items are sold "as is" with absolutely no returns and it is the buyer's responsibility to determine the exact condition of each item. I do not make any guarantees or warranties in regard to the descriptions of the physical condition, size, quality, or rarity. Prospective buyers should ask all questions to determine an item's condition, size and whether or not it has been restored. All items are sold for display purpose. If electrical, mechanical, talking mechanisms, or other working parts are inoperable, even if working at the time of sale, I am not liable due to the inherent nature of vintage collectibles. These toys were made to be played with and tossed a few years later. They were not designed with an adult collector mindset. Due to age they will exhibit stress cracks, poor talking mechanisms, oxidation to metal snaps, etc. Vintage tape often produces tape stains. Expect these issues.

I have owned this item for many years and it has always been stored in a box away from sunlight. It is time for someone else to take care of it.
Thank you for looking.
