http://www.quickreference.info/small-business-stories/american-basic-sci...   An interesting article from the son of this companies owner. These kits were sold in monthly subscriptions for $2- $4 US. Because these were meant to be used often single empty boxes and a mismatch of parts are often seen in auctions / markets.

Origin United States Circa 1960's Est Value $30 - $60 US per kit depending on condition and contents. For the set I would estimate $300 - $600 US depending on demand and market, I would insure these for replacement value under your contents insurance for $700 US. 

Thanks for sharing  ...
