Revolutionary War Soldiers Ad (March 1980)

Marvel comics cover dated March 1980 included a full-page ad for a 204-piece set of Revolutionary War Soldiers. The set advertised two complete armies: "The British Redcoats and the American Bluecoats." Were the American troops really called the Bluecoats? "Re-live again the famous battles of the American Revolution! Form your own battle lines! Hours of fun for the whole family!" Not a bad bargain at $2.98.  Click on the image below for a high-resolution scan of the ad.
