Collectors that have been using old books on postwar or sometimes a fellow collector mentioned an item that they have been looking for many years and by now feel these item do not exist. COTT intends to list these items below and asking for help on information other collectors might have on them. Please contact COTT if you have information or other items to add.

Here is a list of 6464 variations that I have been trying to verify whether they really exist.   Almost all of these were listed in either the 1984 Edition of Greenberg’s Guide to Lionel Trains 1945-1969 shown below as “84 Gbg”, or the 2001 Edition (“01 Gbg”).

Can you, or other 6464 collectors, help me verify if any of these exist?  Thanks!
