Paint case is fresh, clean and bright , with the near-inevitable little tears to the delicate perspex inner.

Large sturdy outer box is an excellent, brightly-coloured example.

Complete and vividly-coloured paper label. Very light wear only – hard to find this good. Couple of light stains – but surely one of the best surviving examples. The outer box is always the most prone to suffering wear over the years.

A notable addition to any Corgi collection. A very difficult find indeed.
