I located this Vintage Dominion Jigsaw Puzzle which dates back to 1945 at an Antique market AND it includes ALL the 150 pieces.

When I first saw it I was sold on the box alone but only hoped all the pieces would be there. And as you can see – they are but one has been ‘made’ to complete it. Can you see which one it is???

And if you cannot read the note above the box it says “All intact Dec 1950 (one made piece)” Even the fact that it originally is missing a piece, keep in mind that the "one made piece" was re-created back in 1950. That is amusing enough - the vintage paper..... 

So yes, I did ask the Vendor “How much is this? 15 cents? “””” - I can be ‘cheeky’ but to me $5.00 was acceptable… I love it!!!!

I have discovered from the website Canada Jigsaw Puzzle  the closest information about this jigsaw puzzle (circled in PINK).

There is no box image or puzzle image to be found in a Google search (however it still may be out there…just sayin’).

The jigsaw puzzle is all very readable on the box too.

The above jigsaw puzzle(s) have been added to my Puzzle Hobby Tracker 

I am in the process of recording all my past jigsaw puzzles that I still have for my walls and all my current puzzles.

Then I have the TO DO list that I am adding from my collection.
