Corgi Gift Set 1 Farm Set. Near mint plus/boxed. With packing piece. From 'The Monty Calme' Corgi Collection.
A delightful two-piece Gift Set first issued during 1966. It comprises:
1) Ford 5000 Super Major Tractor, in light blue and grey with a complete exhaust stack. Bright steering wheel, complete transfer on one side, small nick to the other. With driver.
Chrome chimney stack has a little rubbing. Minor marking at the rear of the tractor where it has come into contact with the other item from this set.
2) Beast Carrier is finished in vibrant deep yellow with red plastic wheels and as-new original tyres. Complete with intact delicate plastic netting and four calves slotted into their ‘straw’ card stand. Few little marks to the tow hook (practically unavoidable).
Pictorial card plinth is crisp, fresh and strongly-coloured, looking barely handled. Both pull-out tabs are in place at both ends too (number 1 printed on one of them, original). Lovely bright colours make this a very attractive backdrop for display. Minor wear at a couple of wheel slots.
Card packing piece is included.
The pictorial card box is complete and clean, looking barely handed. Light sunfading to one surface, whereas all other surfaces look extremely vibrant.
