LEGO set 1218 (1955 /57- N)
SET 1218 (2X3 bricks)- Norway 1957

This is an old Norwegian Supplemental set. This box cover marking ("LEGO Mürsten systemsett") was used in Norway only and is imprinted on one of the sides of the box. To see the other side visit this page on the 1219 set.

The top of the interior drawer shows 2X3 bricks in red and the set would have contained slotted bricks in 1955. This particular set was probably sold in 1957 or 1958 because someone corrected the old "1218" Scandinavian reference to the international "219" that started being used in Scandinavia circa 1958.

The interior and bottom of the inner drawer of the box do not have any decoration. Both box tops are identical, although only one had the number corrected.

The box contains non-slotted 2x3vs03 bricks, produced from 1956 until 1957 or 1958. It contains 7 red and 6 white bricks, although the original number may have been larger. All the bricks are of the same version and of the same subtype, molded in machine-numbered units. They are all numbered from "1" to "3".
