The 460 Lamp Assortment was produced in 1951, and again in 1953 and 1954. It was used primarily by American Flyer dealers on their counter top to sell replacement lamps for cars and accessories. The #460 has three major variations all of which came with an assortment of 54 lamps that included at least three different type of boxes. The Lamp Assortment came in three different variations as indicated on the end of the box which are B1241A, NB-1241, and B-1241B. All of the boxes were specifically designed to sit on the dealer's counter top with a stand-up part that showed a large light bulb that proclaimed "Get Extra Lamps...". The two major differences are that two boxes were blue & yellow while the third was red & white. The photos are of the assortment marked B-1241A.
