This is a magnificent puzzle that Schmidt manufactured in 1987. The title is The Tall Ship and it has been out of catalog for a long time.
This puzzle is COMPLETE (6016 pieces). The pieces are in excellent condition. However there is a certain amount of pieces with small grimy stains, as if the original owner spilled something over the puzzle when it was already assembled. The stains are barely noticeable on the individual pieces, but I am afraid they will be noticeable when the puzzle is complete. I have calculated that the amount of pieces with stains is around 1%. Initially, I was going to keep the puzzle for replacements, but then I thought someone might still make use of it at a low price. The box is in very good condition, with some shelf wear.
Schmidt also produced a similar 6000 pieces puzzle with the title Sailing Ship. Both of them are very difficult to find.
