I have to believe that this is as nice a set of Grumbacher No. 56 pastels as you are going to find. This is the vintage Made in USA, pre-1962, set of 60 different pastels by M. New York, in the original wooden box with all the labels and the box liner.
One pastel in the top row, toward the right is broken. All the rest LOOK intact, but I have not pulled them out to check and risk breaking anything in the process. Some have light use, but many are unused.
Only two (in the bottom row) are even out of place, but I don't want to have to take a new set of pictures. The body of the box is finger jointed, with a 3-ply finished hinged top and a 2-ply unfinished bottom. I did replace the pin on one hinge (see picture).
