Question Trash pile find -- any help on this?

Found this in a pile of random things someone was throwing out.

Tried to find some info online, and found many different Vintage Erector sets, but none looked like this one?

I assume it's missing some of the pieces ... but any ideas as to what it may be worth?

The thing weighs like 20lbs!

Can I use it to retreave a ball from my neighbors yard? Didn't realize how valuable the ball was when we were playing with it

Looks like an old Erector set in original box. Definite condition issues. Red box metal box = 1950s, maybe $20-$50? Just a guess.


Different sets had different boxes but here's an example:

Another:
1951 A C Gilbert Giant Ferris Wheel Erector Set Vtg Antique w Manual 8 1 2 | eBay
