Bright yellow carded inner is complete, clean and very bright. Note the yellow packing block in the centre – the second issue of this set would contain 6 and not 5 models plus the cattle truck. A little ruffling and tiny edge tears caused by the cattle truck.

Box base is clean, bright and complete. No tears. Crisp card. Very nice!
Box sleeve is bright and clean, looking very fresh. Small part-puncture has pressed back into place. Lightest wear besides and a little penned writing in one small area on box reverse:
