Corgi 1153 Priestman Boom Crane with grab. Near mint plus/boxed. From a high quality collection in the U.S.
First we have seen in ages!
Issued during 1973-74, this Corgi Major model is a delightful example in vibrant glossy orange and red, complete and intact, and functions well. Supple rubber tracks. Bright jib has some tarnishing in places.
Lovely unused quality.
One little (almost certainly ) factory assembly mark at one side. ‘Hi Grab’ label are bright and complete. Window glazing is unmarked.
The model is housed in a * virtually pristine polystyrene tray* which includes a bright promotional label – and an original card packing piece on which the model sits, so keeping the rubber tracks from reacting with the polystyrene tray.
Included is the often missing large Instruction Leaflet:
The large window box is complete, clean and bright with notably intact original cellophane. Hard to find these large window boxes housing comparatively heavy items this good! Few little stain spots in one corner. Period price label on one end flap.
We have not seen better!
