Corgi 153 Proteus Campbell Bluebird Record Car. Near mint plus/boxed. Complete U.K. Crossed Flags & black plastic wheels. From The Berlin Collection.
Perhaps contrary to expectations, this is the first issue version with black plastic wheels. Later, metal wheels would be used.
This black plastic-wheeled version is in fine, all original condition with complete crossed Union Jack flags on the nose.
In original condition throughout with a pleasing lustre. Three little marks to the paint and a small casting mark on one side. There is a little minor ’nibbling’’ to the background section of the transfer.
The long slim box is bright and complete. Minor age/handling wear.
