|The picture shows a view of this Complete Set of (83) 1959 Nabisco Cereal Prize Lithographed Tin Country Flags With Premium Map in this lot. This United Nations Flags set was available in 1959. There was a United States set available as well. The tin flags were acquired from Nabisco Shredded Wheat cereal boxes and you had to mail away for the World map. The back of the flags have information about the different countries. They have tabs so that they can all be connected to each other or to hang them from the poster. The poster is marked as follows:|

To judge the sizes the map measures 24'' x 21-3/4''. The map and the tin flags appear to be in near mint to mint condition as pictured. Before we acquired this set, the map was thumb tacked to cardboard and then it was shrink wrapped for protection. Two of the flags fell off before it was shrink wrapped, but they are included.
