Corgi 1153 Priestman Boom Crane with Grab. Near mint/boxed. From The Somerset Collection.
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.
Little mark on the grab.
‘Hi Grab’ labels are bright and complete (tiny age transparency). Intact window glazing (small light mark).
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 ( a little loose). Hard to find these large window boxes housing comparatively heavy items this good! Period price label on one end flap. Tiniest start of a tear.
