The colourfully-illustrated detailed card plinth on which each car sits is intact and bright. A decorative backdrop for the models. Original card packing support piece in the base of the plinth. No wheel slot tears.
Light wear includes a few very small stain spots. Lots of relevant printed information:
The pictorial all-card outer box is complete, if rather grubby now, with a little water staining in one small area but no tears! No graffiti either.
A desirable and scarce Corgi Gift Set. Surely, one of the best surviving examples.
