Issued between 1969-72. This impressive set comprises a Scammell Handyman MKIII in blue and red finish with a shiny silver jib and hook as well as a rhinoceros in a plastic cage. Vibrant original paint finish, complete paper labels, detailed cast wheels. Complete and bright “Come to the Circus” label correctly on one side only. Rhino within its plastic cage with grass/straw detail and clear packing piece.

If you want to fault it, you could note tiny marking to the silver jib and the occasional negligible paint mark.
These white plastic inners are nearly always found with at least one split – this example is notably split-free!
The outer box continues the theme with clean, fresh colours on crisp barely handled card. Original cellophane is intact too!
Tiny wear only. Difficult to find this good.
