From 1958 (and sold through 1962 in this case) this is the AC Gilbert Microscope Lab Set. It came with a microscope and test tubes along with several interesting items to view.
This set seems to never have been used as everything is still in the original packaging. Aslso all the original packaging material is still present.
There have been some damage to the content over time. The cardboard loops are broken on the piece that holds the tube containing the shrimp eggs (brine shrimp aka Sea Monkeys as seen in the comic books). The shrimp egg tube is still there and filled with dried shrimp eggs Don't think they will hatch anymore. Also there is one broken slide.
Part 2 coming right up.
