Sterling Plastic Rocket

Posted by PicasaThis is a Sterling Plastic 6407 Rocket with a pencil sharpener housed in the removable capsule. It appears that in the 60s or early 70s this rocket was made by Sterling Plastic. The one in the picture was made recently from the original SP (Sterling Plastic) tooling except the small pencil sharpener which was made by Sterling Plastic and is marked SP. The rocket was made to go with some type of Lionel toy train. The number on the rocket is NR#529. Last week on EBay they were selling an original Sterling Plastic Capsule and it sold for $190.00. Since I am looking for as many Sterling Plastic items as are still out there $190.00 was more then I wanted to pay. So instead I paid $40.00 and got the complete set with the SP only on the sharpener. The entire rocket was made in the US. Add them all to your collection.
