1 Bolt Trick Limited Edition
Edition #3/87

A very rare chance to pick up one of the first editions of this puzzle (#3!). It is unique design in that there are 16 little scenes that all tie together to the overall theme. There are lots of surprises and some great attention to detail in the design. It’s not as straightforward as it looks, that is all we will say. In addition to solving the puzzle, there are 3 fun challenges you need to solve, so lots of fun puzzling ahead!

There are even 3 small black colored pieces. We believe these were left over from when it was cut to indicate the cut points and were in the box by mistake, but you can be the judge. Hand painted as far as we can tell, we think all LEs from this era were.

Very good condition for age. Just showing a little wear. There is some discoloration on a few pieces, which we have seen on older puzzles before and most likely due to the hand painting (see pics). 4 personal pieces (4 x names). 1 very minor repair on a personal piece, you can’t even tell unless you look very close. Tissue is a little worn as can be expected from a puzzle of this age.

    How We Rate the Condition of Puzzles

    We do our best to describe the condition of the puzzles.  It is a little challenging as everyone has their own standards.  We suggest you rely on the closeup photos and feel free to ask questions if you have any.  That being said, generally this is what our various ratings mean:

    Excellent – Looks as close to new as a brand new puzzle can.  There might be very slight amount of wear on a very small number of pieces, but almost impossible to see without close inspection.

    Very Good – Puzzles in this category have probably only been done a few times and show almost no signs of wear.  Maybe a small number of pieces that stand out as having a little uplifting or other issues.

    Good – Puzzle has been done a few times and there may be a number of pieces showing wear on their edges.   The wood is in good structural condition, it’s mostly cosmetic issues with the paper layer being worn.

    Fair – Starting to see some problems with the puzzles.  Worn pieces, possibly a chip or two, that sort of thing.  Read the description and look at the pictures to see exact issues.  This also may include puzzles that are missing a piece, but otherwise in good condition.

    Poor – In need of major restoration, may be missing pieces, lots of chipped pieces or major condition issues to the paper layer.

    We do take into consideration the condition of the boxes, but most will have at least a tiny amount of wear since when they are shipped the corners can get worn down.  Anything significant will be noted in the description.
