Patent Pending Monopoly Game from 1935
Sorry about the funky layout (especially for Netscape Navigator users), but I wanted to get the
descriptions fairly close to the pictures...
Overall, the game is in good shape, with some noticeable edge wear on the box top and some soiling.
The pictures on this page tend to show defects and problems that look more severe than they really are
because I had to sharpen them in Photoshop after transferring them form my digital camera.
The board is in good shape, with some
corner wear and minor edge wear. The label is intact, but does have some water stains. Again, I have not attempted
any cleaning of this game. The playing surface is in good shape, with some scratches near the "Chance" and "Community
Chest" card pile areas. There is also some minor staining in various places. The paper on the crease is split, but not torn or
separated. Note that the board has the $300 income tax and no prices under the properties.
The game contains the following equipment:
Close-up of the money and two property cards,
one showing the unprinted backs.
The money is in good shape, and most bills have no marks or folds. A few are marked, folded or slightly torn. The property cards are in very good shape, with the Baltic Avenue card showing some wear, and a few minor stains and folds on other cards. The Chance and Community Chance cards are in good shape as well, with a few having folds and minor stains. There are two box inserts, both of which need repair. The purple on is collapsed and could be taped back up.
