The tip of the rocket had a metal band that would allow it to be picked up by the magnetic lift of this accessory. At the tip of the missile is circular sponge pad that is rarely found intact, and the walls of the missile are thin and prone to cracking or other damage. There are two GRAY racks that mount in the flat car’s stake holes and the missile was held in place by a No. 6418-9 elastic band. Reproduction missiles, missile parts, racks, and elastic bands are available so collectors should watch for these. The original missiles are imprinted "U S NAVY" and "BUILT BY / LIONEL". Came with early AAR trucks with disc couplers.
