What? Was this same "golden Boxcar" being sold at the mentioned gun show
taken from a musty trophy case in downtown Philly in the mid '70s? What was
PC's corporate address? Would there be a way to check for
authenticity...aside from Jer's validation photo? With proper documentation
this item would be a true find. I've wander many a show and seen seemingly
trophy items like this, but with no validation, it could be nothing more
then a "fake"

Take a look at the cover of the August 1973 PC POST from the PC web
site and see if this looks familiar:
