    The first issue was boxed and the second one was in a bubble card but with different

    The first Jupiter issue featured streamer recovery instead using a parachute.

    Items mint (opened)

    First boxed issue was produced in 1962 (second Quercetti toy rocket after the Tor
    dated 1961 ).
    Two versions were manufactured, grey rocket with yellow ogive and orange catapults
    and frames or white rocket with red ogive and yellow catapults.
    This was due to the availability of raw material during the production years.

    In the early 70's a blister packed issue with white rocket, red ogive was produced.
    It is extremely rare due it's short production span.

    Thanks to Filippo Messeri for the historical background.

    This sleek model has great detail in design and mechanics. It flies up to 600' and it's altitude is adjustable. The rocket has dual parachute deployment. Both nose cone capsule and main body descend after apogee.
