Matchbox 1 Diesel Road Roller. Scarce version from 1962. Very near mint (paint miss)/boxed. From a large, stunning diverse collection with many items in old shop stock condition.
notes:

From one of the largest, private collections we have ever seen, with many items bought new at the time and stored away until now. Taken as a whole, the collection provides an exciting, kaleidoscopic snapshot of popular diecast toys issued during the 1960?s -1970?s.

This is the last regular-wheeled version finished in vibrant mid-green with red plastic wheels and two baseplate rivets. Lovely lustre on this model which has barely been out of its box:

Note the paint miss low down on one side, probably due to rough casting at this area.
Lovely vivid fresh box has a tiny corner crumple. Otherwise hard to fault.
