Vintage 1960’s PLayskool World Map Wooden Tray Puzzle -In Mint Condition w/ Box

This is an Outstanding 1960's 25 Piece Wooden Tray Puzzle of The World with a Built-In Compass by Playskool in Mint Condition with its Original Box
 
We had one of these in my First Grade Class at Lincoln Elementary School in Cicero Illinois back in 1970. Funny, but of my most vivid memories of that period are of Carpenter's songs, H.R. Pufnstuf, Schwinn Stingray Bikes, ……and this puzzle. I loved it! I was just learning to read…..and throughout that school year each decoded continent, ocean and sea name was revealed to me and has remained in my data banks ever since. When you lift up the pieces there are silhouette maps with corresponding indexes that list countries of each of the continents and islands in chains. There is even a little built in compass; just in case you want to orient yourself with the map and the world
 
The puzzle is in Mint Condition and the box is in Very Good Vintage condition with its cellophane still in tact, one split in the border, some creasing here and there, …….but still bright, clean and displayable
